Many stitch patterns are presented through the use of charts. A chart is a pictorial representation of the knitted work viewed from the right (public) side. Each box in the chart represents 1 stitch in the knitting.

The chart begins in the bottom right-hand corner.

Begin here

2 Read the line in the chart from right to left, repeating the entire box or an outlined portion as necessary, until you get to the end of the line. This is the end of the row.

3 When knitting in the round, all rounds are read from right to left.

4 When knitting flat, wrong-side rows are read from left to right-so the direction of reading the chart alternates between right to left and left to right on each row.
