Knitting charts are  fabulous tools for any knitter. Far more concise than written pattern  instructions, charts are a graphic representation of both a pattern and the  knitted fabric it creates. Learning to use knitting charts opens up a whole new  world of projects you can create.  Join  Jennifer Dassau as she charts a course from understanding stitch symbols to  seeing how they are used in lace, cable, and colorwork patterns. Never be  nervous about using charts again!

  • Learn  basic (and not-so-basic) chart symbols and see how they closely resemble each  stitch.
