OK, add this one to the "I hate stupid paternwriting" list:
I'm working on Salt Peanuts, on the first front piece. After the armhole shaping instructions, it tells you to at the same time when entire piece measures 16 1/4 inches, to start reverse collar patt. . .
HOW STUPID is this? First off, who's gonna think to read that far ahead (the at the same time part is 4 lines below), and measure from the bottom edge when calculating for the NECK shaping?? AND -- if, like me, you're making your garment shorter in the waist, you can't quickly figure out where to start that shaping, b/c you're supposed to measure the whole thing.
WHY couldn't they just write "after 1" of armhole start the shaping"????
Result of this: I'm ripping out 6 perfectly good inches of knitting.
