Need chart reading Help!
I am knitting a romper for a newborn baby that i got off of Ravelry. i'm almost done, but i've hit a wall! the pattern is knit in the round and i know that i am supposed to be doing some small cables in the bodice of the romper, but the chart is just throwing me off. It doens't have the usual x and o's on the chart it has x's and /'s. Its really hard to describe with out someone looking at it.
the pattern is called
13905 Romper
by Ane Cecilie Tofthagen
which was published in
Dale of Norway / Dalegarn #139, Designs for Baby

it doesn't have the pattern listed because it is out of print now, but I have a copy that she emailed me. If you can help me out by looking at the pattern and explaining it to me I will emial it to you.
I'm not an expert at reading charts at all...infact most of the patterns I knit have everything worded out instead of charted, so i'm a bit lost.

Please help me! lol

Not having seen the pattern, I can only go from my own experience but I have seen charts where the symbols you're describing refer to the cable. I've attached an example.

It doesn't quite look like that. it just has x and / which I know the slash means its a cable. but i have no idea what kind of cable and there are no dots or lines to make a grid. there is nothing telling you what row it is either. if you PM me your email address I can forward the pattern to you.

Based on the legend below this is a 2 over 2 cable. I have not seen this style of charting before, but then chart symbols are not truely standardized and have changed over the years.


This is the same as the chart that yarnrainbow shows above.

thank you so much! i have not dealt much with charts before but i knew this was one i hadn't seen before. it was originally a Norwegian pattern so that might explain why its so different. Thanks so much for your help
