Chart Knitting

Chart knitting can be intimidating the first time, but most knitters find it easier. Take a bit of time and see if you find it working for you.

Chart A:
Row 1: Chain Selvedge stitch, knit 8, purl 2, knit 9
Row 2: Chain selvedge stitch, knit 1, purl 7, knit 2, purl 7, knit 2
Row 3: Chain selvedge stitch, knit 2, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, right slant decrease, purl 2, left slant decrease, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 3

You can write out the directions this way, if you prefer, but most of us find that it is faster to look at the chart and read the chart. I'm not going to write out more of the design, because of copyright issues, but you can see, from this, how it would be done. If you want more information, ask me off the blog.

I can't echo Margaret's tip enough, USE A MARKER BETWEEN EACH REPEAT that way you don't have to count. It is also a way to quickly realize that you have made a mistake.
