09-14-2006, 01:23 PM
I can't seem to find a pattern for a skull and crossbone scarf or purse that doesn't make you knit off of a chart. :hair:
My problem is I can't read charts. It's not a matter of I haven't learned how it's a problem of I have literally no ability to (it's a learning disability, charts, maps, two dimentinal pics, spacial skills, all at the level of a Kindergardner :wall: ). Anyhow, I would really love to knit either a skull scarf or felted purse for my cousin for Christmas, but I need the pattern to be written.
Can anyone help me?!? Pretty Please With a Cherry on Top....and Thank You.

Have you found a chart that you like? If so I can try to interpret it for you.

I don't think you'll find a pattern for a picture that's written out. Believe me, it would be soooo much harder than following a chart.

Here is the pattern I really like. If someone could write it out for me I will be their best friend.
Believe me, it would be soooo much harder than following a chart.
The problem is my brain basically can't see the chart. All I see is a bunch of lines and boxes, but I can't translate it into a picture. I got tested in college for a learning disability and they found that the spatial portion of my brain pretty much doesn't work. If the chart or pattern is written out I can pick it up just fine.

What if you block everything except the line you're working on? Can you see it then? You know--3 white, 2 blue, etc. The charts are only read one line at a time, anyway.

I've tried. The problem is trying to 'convert' a 2D image into a 3D image.
And the charts are one side....I don't know how to explain....I can't see a box and make a stitch out of it. It just doesn't compute...Believe me it is SUPER frustrating. But if it's written, I'm fine. My brain just doesn't think in pictures. If I needed to tell a sketch artist what someone looked like I couldn't because honestly I know what my mom looks like, and have no prob. identifying her, but I can't picture her in my head.
I can't read maps :shrug: , and you give me a 10 things to put into a trunk, I will get two in, and there will be no more room, you give those same 10 things to a 6 year old and they will prob. get 6 of them in before they run out of room, but you give them to an adult they'll get all 10 things in and still have room for other stuff.
