reading a chart-help!!!!!!
I am looking at this chart. The pattern looks like the picture. I am reading the chart from left to right all rows. So the first row starts with P2 then K2. The second line starts with K2 then P2

The code says the - means to purl on RS Knit on wrong side.
When I do this it is not like the picture at all.
What am I doing wrong.

I'm not terribly experienced with charts but I believe you read knitting 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. So, on the chart you show, you start reading each row on the side that the number is listed beside. I know it's not intuitive but that's the way it's done. Here's an article on how to read a knitting chart. Try reading the chart this way and see if you get the result you're looking for. Good luck!

When you follow a chart in the round you read all rows R to L, but knit flat, the WS rows are L to R.
