    I am in favor of any change which honors the fact that individuals may have different comprehension approaches!
    Great job!
    Additionally, placing graphics and verbal directions side-by-side might encourage yarners who have only done things in one way to delve into a new experience.

    Why haven't we been doing this all along? I think it's brilliant!

    I do like this. Trying to read a written instruction that is elsewhere from the chart has always been a real pain. It not only takes extra time but is also visually a nightmare for me. Of course, I prefer charts and only use the written to clarify a question about the chart. I do think this newer style can/will be a help to those trying to learn chart reading--it is sort of like a written sing-a-long.

    makes perfect sense as long as the written instructions are along side the chart! I really am glad to see this! but should the instructions precede or follow the chart, it could be confusing to see the last row instructions first.

    Perhaps this method would increase my ability to test out chart reading while never having to get out of my comfort level “cold turkey!” ????????‍♀️

    I love using charts, and prefer them to written instructions , but also like when written instructions are included in case I get stuck or need some clarification.

    I think it is a great idea. It would certainly help me in projects for lace knitting. Maybe the idea will catch on.

    This would be wonderful and I can't see how it could possible inconvenience someone who uses charts. I have a neurological vision issue that makes it impossible to read charts. I can't tell you how many tines I have purchased a pattern advertised as having written instructions, only to find out that the written part only instructed me to follow the chart!

    Thank you for being inclusive to the chart-challenged like me!

    Wonderful idea. Makes good sense to me. Like to see new ways to do things better.

    Great idea.

    I prefer to use charts. I love that they look like what you are knitting, so I for one, would not be interested in trying your chart.

    Yes, I particularly like that the written instructions which match the chart are ALONG SIDE the chart - I wish that all written instructions could come this way, although I know some longer stitch counts will make this unfeasible - but on this short chart it makes the instructions perfectly clear. When I was learning to read charts I found it especially difficult that the written instructions are on a completely different page and upside down from the chart, I kept losing my place and became frustrated.

    I have just made my first item using a chart and I had to write out the instructions first and being able to refer to both made it much easier to do. I think it is a great idea having both side by side.
