Hi can anyone tell me how to read an intarsia pattern right to left or left to right, or both?? Thanks so much,

Hello there!

I answered your question in the other post you made, but I'll copy it here for you:

It sounds like you are using a chart for the intarsia portion.

Your chart will have rows of symbols for the section you're working on. Just start on the bottom row, and read the symbols from right to left. Then, go up to the next row, and read the symbols left to right. Keep going back and forth this way as you go up the chart. Soon, your knitting will match what you see on the chart, and it will get easier.

If your knitting is done with stockinette stitch, be sure the knit the rows on the right side, and purl the rows on the wrong side.

Good luck! :thumbsup:
