charted knitting
That's too bad. I try to chart every pattern I can. Have you read any books that explains how charts work? My favorite is Barbara Walker's Charted Knitting Designs. I think I saw it at Amazon books for less than $20. I agree that some charts are so confusing and hard to read. Those I usually convert to BW"s symbols. The reason I like her system is that her charts of cables look just like the finished product. There are vertical lines below and above the cable so you know where the crossed stitches are coming from and where they are going.
