Don't be tempted Review by Christine

I'm a very experienced knitter and usually have little problem figuring out a pattern, but not in this case. I've been making socks for years. The head and neck shaping is similar to turning a heel, but after several tries, I couldn't get it. This pattern needs more pictures and directions. I am out the price of the pattern, the cost of a skein of yarn and the trouble of returning the rest of the yarn.
