Charts are basically a representation of what your knitting looks like with the right side facing and once you know a few basics, they're not too hard.
- Charts are read from the bottom to the top, so row 1 will be at the bottom of the chart.
- Right side rows are read from right to left.
- Wrong side rows are read from left to right.
- If you're knitting in the round, then all rows are read from right to left.
- Each square is a stitch and each symbol has a meaning.
