View Full Version : Melissa Leapman's Cables Untangled - Her Charts

01-07-2011, 05:21 AM
I'm considering making the Simple Hat and Scarf from Melissa Leapman's book Cables Untangled but I'm confused by something. Round 2 of the chart for the hat seems to differ from it's written instructions...unless she writes her charts differently from everyone else. I've learned to read charts as follows: row 1 - right to left, row 2 - left to right, row 3 - right to left, row 4 - left to right, and so on. Her chart seems to either read all rows right to left or there is an error between the chart and the translation. It's only a 4 row chart and rounds 2 and 4 are the identical so it's difficult to tell.

Is there anyone who has the book and is familiar with reading charts (her charts in particular) who would be willing to look at the pattern and tell me whether this is an error (and if so, which is correct - chart or written pattern) or does she differ in how she writes her charts?

If you're knitting in the round, like for the hat, all rows are read R to L.
