Reading Knitting Charts

Lace Edge example-c

Seems to be a love-hate relationship! Some people (and I’d be one of those) love charts in knitting, others are ambivalent or….you know. So, I developed a little tutorial (it’s listed under the Cable Knitting Resources tab at the top of the blog) or you can click here.

There is a lot of skill involved in reading charts, especially interpreting charts for knitting flat. Hopefully this little tutorial will help if you want to give it a try.




  1. I always prefer rows written out instead of using a chart. But I did use charts for my first fair isle cardigan recently and managed to follow along. Thanks for the suggestions here.
