Hello, I was one to prefer to pay for a pattern than use a chart only. I recently started offering to convert charts for people in world format, if you would like I can do this. (I don't use any programs to do this only by reading the chart) it takes time however after doing several for others I have began to speed up. I am always happy to help new beaders.
my email feel free to email me Wink

Can you let me know when the colors have been checked. I'm going to wait to order beads for my next pattern until then so I can redo my pattern, and hopefully the colors will be correct matches. Thank you, maybe email message here?


I understand.  Kiss  I'm not sure I could take them apart, either.  Though maybe if there's one you find particularly cute, you could repurpose it into a felted purse?

And I completely understand why you wouldn't want to give them to other kids, either.  Kiss


You got it right, Melanie ... the first chart was the seed stitch and the second one was the moss stitch.

I've been contemplating the following ideas for additional follow up tutorials ...

1.  Simple lace pattern because of additional stitch types; if someone
     has a free one they would like to see done, I'm open to that.
2.  Decoding a user suggested [free] chart where users can practice
     interpreting charts with help when they get stuck
3.  Finish up by showing how charts make it REALLY easy to modify a
     pattern to suit your own needs. 

I'm open to any / all of these options as well as any other suggestions, comments, ideas, etc.


I have been a long time crocheter who could not learn to knit before [I'm a lefty]; I tried the looms and loved them, and then by using youtube videos and such, taught myself to needle knit, too.  I don't think I would have ever [re]tried to learn how to needle knit except for learning how to do it on the looms.

And now, due to hand / joint pain, sometimes the only thing I can do is loom knit.
