10 comments on “Reading Charts

  1. hi Staci, so when you’re knitting in the round, you don’t IGNORE the even #’d rows (because you’re always on the RS), but you simply READ the even #’d rows from right to left, just like the odd #’s rows? thanks!

  2. Lindy – correct. You still need to work the even numbered rows when knitting in-the-round, but you read the chart from R to L.

  3. Thanks so much for replying. By the way, I have only 3 knitting websites that I regularly look at and I know there are plenty out there), and yours is hands down my favorite. You’re a VERY good teacher! Thanks again!

  4. Hi Staci,
    Love, love your videos. I enjoy getting these video tips. I made an easy sock pattern (first time ever) that you showed on video and it turned out great. Thank you so much for all your help.

  5. please will you make a video on increasing evenly in a complex pattern on a sleeve. should we try to chart it out, and could you show us how to do that? thank you

  6. Hi Staci,

    I’m looking at my first cable chart (and knitting in the round), so some of the symbols are grouped in either threes or fours. I’m guessing that I also read the chart legend from right to left, just as I’m reading the chart from right to left? Just making sure that I’m matching the chart to the legend correctly so my cables are occurring in the correct order!

  7. Sam – I can’t help you much with your specific pattern (since I don’t know what it is), but yes – traditionally, charts are read from right to left, every row, when knitting in the round. If you have more questions on your pattern, I suggest contacting the designer directly on Ravelry.

    Hope that helps!

  8. I’m knitting my first Easter egg and using a color chart for the middle 12 rows. Your tutorial was very helpful and made a daunting task look easy. It was! Thanks, Staci!
