HOW TO READ KNIT­TING CHARTS Knit­ting charts fol­low the same rules un­less the pat­tern states oth­er­wise. Right side rows are usu­ally odd num­bers and are worked right to left. Wrong side rows are nor­mally even num­bers and are worked left to right. Pat­tern re­peats will be con­tained in an area out­lined in red and some charts will have fur­ther coloured out­lines for dif­fer­ent sizes. The key will give you each sym­bol and tell you what stitch it is.
