It's the colors that interfere with my interpretation is what I mean. I do knit from charts now, though I still prefer written most of the time. But having the colors would confuse me, I'm able to read the symbols fine.
I've always understood the symbols, I just had a hard time doing my knitting by reading the charts. I was used to reading a pattern from L to R, so it was switching to the R to L reading that messed me up. After translating a few charts to words I got better at it and can use charts now. But I don't like them as much for some knitting as other patterns.
