Crochet Quote: Artistic intution

Today’s crochet quote comes from Irish Crochet: Crocheter’s Historical Pattern Series Volume Two Crochet Quote: Artistic intution by Melissa Johnson.

“The aim of the worker should be to produce the most artistic work she is capable of; therefore if by altering a curve, or by adding a leaflet to any sprig, she would make a design more pleasing to herself, she should not one moment hesitate to follow her artistic instinct.”

I love the fact that even this historical text, which dates back to 1911, encourages creativity from the crocheter!

Do you alter crochet patterns to suit your own tastes or do you follow them to the letter?
