I love this program I just haven’t taken time to sit down and do a swatch. I will try to be a better supporter. I would hate to loose such a terrific resource offered to knitters.
Hi, what does the panel mean at the beginning of the pattern?
Panels are stitch patterns that do not repeat horizontally. So you can insert it as a detail in something like a sleeve, blanket, or sweater front.
