View Full Version : Book: Andean Inspired Knits

11-28-2006, 09:49 AM
I just picked up this book from the library and most of the projects are not something I'd make or wear. But, there is a Lacy Shawl with Fur Trim that is beautiful. I have never knit lace before, but am willing to try. The lace pattern is given in a chart, which I have also never done.

Any resources for learning to knit from a chart?

Hi Candicane,

This knitty (http://www.knitty.com/issuespring05/PATTbranchingout.html) article has both a chart with legend *and* the instructions written out. Perhaps reading through it will help you get the idea of it.

Not all charts are set up the same, however...some *do* include the purl (or wrong-side) rows if there's something that must be done other than straight purling on that row.

Good Luck :wink: Always good for the little grey cells to try something new, eh?
