How to use our charts

Our charts are illustrations of patterns, and are used instead of writing the pattern out in full. With charts, you can instantly see what you'll be knitting. Each stitch is represented by a symbol, and you'll start knitting at the bottom right-hand comer. Right side rows are read from right to left and wrong side rows from left to right. Each row of squares represents a row of knitting.
