Knitting pattern authors who do not use charts will be exiled to a remote island with a calculus textbook and graph paper, and only enough wood to build one boat without errors. When you learn how to properly design something first, write down the plan, and THEN execute on it you can rejoin civilization.
Those who do not survive will not be missed.
As a nice change of pace from THAT debacle I’m going to build some Legos. At least they know how to plan ahead.
