Opinions welcome

Hi everyone! I have 2 ways of writting a hypothetical line in a crochet amigurumi pattern. I would like to know which you personally find easiest to follow, option 1 or 2. There are no right or wrong answers, I am just curious of people’s opinions. :slightly_smiling_face:

Option1:
[5sc,(sc,inc)x2]x2 (22)

Option2:
6sc, inc, sc, inc, 6sc, inc, sc, inc (22)

I personally prefer option1, but I see how it can start looking too much like math equations and trip someone up.

Option 2 may be lengthy and easy to lose your spot, but you know exactly what steps are taken in which order.

:woman_shrugging: like the title says opinions welcome.

We have a poll now! :partying_face:

option 1 makes a lot more sense to me,

option 2 is sort of long and confusing in my opinion :sob:

Option 2.
The brackets just get a bit confusing for me

I like option 1

Tbh, i didn’t like either: I think you should write it like (6sc, inc, sc, inc)x2. Brackets get a little bit to confusing for me but i don’t like it all written out. Sooo, i like option… 1.5 :joy:

I think #2 takes out some confusion on exactly which parts are repeated.

Oh yeah, your right. Just do (6 sc, inc, sc) x2

i personally like option 2 better because it tells me the exact stitches and all of the brackets can get confusing

Option 1, it’s easier for me to read and follow along with

That is always the ideal case but I chose those 2 as the examples for when a pattern can get complicated. Option 1.5 is not always possible when writing a pattern and that was why I posed the question.

I would choose option 2. It can be a little easier for beginners than option 1.
