Ok, I'm fairly certain I'm not an idiot...
In fact, I've got an IQ north of genius.
But this stupid pattern is driving me crazy.
Cryptic instructions are really not a great way to show the quality of your patternmaking skills...
Sure, YOU made the pants, congratulations. But the pattern you drafted is a giant piece of crap.
So, I'm left with two choices:
1. Try to figure out how to make it work, ignoring your unintelligible gibberish.
2. Set fire to both the pattern and the project as it now stands and call it a day.
I'm leaning towards #2
