Hi! I could use a little help with my pattern which uses a chart. I have never read a chart before and would really appreciate a little help from those of you 'experts'.
I'm knitting a pair of socks using DPN's. The leg part of the pattern uses a chart. My questions are:
1. When using DPN's do I read the chart left to right on odd rows and left of right on even rows? I think this is what you do when knitting with regular needles but do you do the same with DPN's since you are knitting in the round?
2. There is a blank box on the chart which represents a knit stitch and there is another blank box with red outline that says 'patter repeat'. What does this mean? Also I can't tell the difference between the box for the knit stitch and the box for the pattern repeat. There's probably a simple answer but I'm at a loss...helpppppp please!
Thanks so much!
