Chart question
This is probably a foolish question because I have yet to use a chart, but I found this pattern for a dishcloth with a candy cane motif and the chart has no symbols, so how do you knit by the chart?

well i know someone who is more experienced is going to be able to answer this better than me but i think the only reason a chart has symbols is to tell you the changes in stitches... this one only changes colors. the stitches themselves are all stockinette in the middle. it looks like you just need to worry about knowing how to change colors and how many stitches of each color you need in each row.

You read a color chart from right to left on the front and from left to right on the back. There are no symbols because you just use the colors, intarsia style, where the colored squares are.

This is stranding, not intarsia.

"stranded knitting" is more like Fair Isle, where the color is carried all across the row. I see this is as more of an intarsia since the pattern is kind of self-contained in the middle.
