Doily Patterns

The doily patterns on the Knittingfool site are an attempt to capture knitted lace doily patterns in a data base form. The diagrams of the doily patterns are generated demand from instructions in my database. I have tried to present the patterns both as diagrams and in a more traditional written instruction.

Thank you for providing such a wealth of information and projects.
One question; on several of your doilies the charts say “Begin round by slipping one stitch from the left needle to the right needle.” However, the written instructions do not say this. Why?
Thank you again for a life-changing website.

Response from 1knittingfool:
All the instructions are coming out several different data elements in a set of database tables. The programming for the graphic includes the data element that contains the “slip one stitch . . .” instruction. The programming for the written instructions does not read that data element (yet). All of the above is the long way to say, “I have a bug in my programming.”
