I'm doing my own pattern (shoot me now) for a friend and was curious what is preferred by most of you. Is it better/preferred to send the item (using a somewhat unique stitch repeat, but not hard) via a chart for the row to row stitch instructions OR should I write it out for each row (i.e. k3, SSK, k5, YO, k1, YO, k5, k2tog, k3...okay, so that isn't my actual stitches but you get the idea).
(I'm currently knitting it from charts I made and it doesn't bug me much but I DO have 3+ pieces of paper floating around me at any given time.)
Thank you guys for your input. Oh and also, this pattern changes (at least for a while) due to adding stitches for a raglan sleeve, if that makes a diff.
