Heads up! Stitch-Maps.com is now slightly more flexible in the knitspeak it accepts.
For example, when faced with
sl1, k2tog, psso Stitch-Maps.com used to complain
We don’t know what “psso” means and insist on
sl1-k2tog-psso instead. Now it handles
sl1, k2tog, psso,
yfwd, and other “aliases” for its standard abbreviations. It also recognizes other bits of phrasing, like
Row 1 (right side) and
repeat from * to last 3 stitches, over which it used to stumble before.
Really, this shouldn’t have a tremendous effect on anyone, other than making it a touch easier to enter stitch pattern instructions. Actually, if you do run into any hiccups – say, you receive a weird error message, or the site doesn’t accept phrasing that you think it should – please let me know!
The good news? The changes that permit this additional flexibility will make it easier for me to add support for new stitches, such as
k1 wrapping yarn twice and (gasp!)
2/2 RC. Stay tuned!
