That's a wonderful article! The question of grafting stitch patterns other than stockinette comes up often enough and this is a big help. Thank you very much.

Jan, great article!

Dumb question here: if you graft left handed, like me, shift the back needle chart to the right, and start grafting from the back needle?

Oy. I can't make sense of charts like that with them in the order and placement I find them. You may well have the right of it there.
