During the class, we’ll also be discussing how to read from pattern charts, something that until people are often wary of until they experience how clear they really are. Charts are becoming increasingly prevelant in contemporary patterns and can make working complicated stitch patterns a little simpler. They also allow the designer to condense the physical size of their patterns, meaning they require less printing and are easier to travel with for the knitter on the go. We’ll be working from both charts and written instructions, to highlight the differences of both methods.
