The numbers on the right side of the chart: 1-3-5-7-9 mean rows 1-3-5-7-9. Odd numbered rows are worked from right to left
and the right side is facing you.
The rows inbetween are the wrong side rows, and should be numbered 2-4-6-8-10 as most charts do on the left side of the chart. These wrong side rows are worked from the chart reading the chart from left to right.
It also helps your "eye" to color code the cables on the chart. Pick pink for left leaning cables, and green for right leaning cables, for example. That way you won't accidentally mis-cross a cable the wrong way. Your eye will know whether or not to put your cable stitches in front or in back when making the crossover.
It speeds up the process to color code charts. I use colored gel pens, and sometimes I use highlighters. Just fill in the cable boxes on the chart and in the legend.
