Crochet Quote: Give her a pattern

Today’s crochet quote is by Stacey Trock from the intro to her crochet book Crocheted Softies.

In her book, Stacey points out that it’s totally fine to follow a pattern exactly and get the same results as the designer but it’s also fine to modify patterns as your creativity sees fit. I agree!

“Give a crocheter a pattern, and she’ll make an exact copy of the sample in the pattern. But teach a crocheter how to use a pattern, and there’s no stopping her!”

Do you normally follow a crochet pattern exactly or modify it?
