What makes you feel like a pattern is too hard to knit?

As I swatch for my next brioche pattern, I’m trying to figure out why some stitches look more intimidating than others. This particular project has increases and decreases which form a motif. It surprises me how many experienced knitters write off projects like this because they “look too hard.” In my mind, they’re all just stitches, sometimes you just need to put in the time to learn and make a few mistakes to accomplish a goal.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic. My goal as a designer is to introduce new techniques in an accessible way and feedback helps that happen.
