So I have my first question already!!

I have never used a chart before. I am working on the sleeve and using chart B.

The chart shows 10 rows. I would think I repeat those 10 rows. But there are littl number 1-9 on the side, what's that all about?????

Those little numbers don't seem right to me. I would just ignore them.

My CPH is finished, but I would be happy to answer any questions any of you send my way. Post your direct questions to me via PM.
That way I will not miss your question.

Ginny, I didn't know you had a CPH-KAL started! Sorry! I didn't mean to hijack your KAL! No sense having two CPH-KAL's running at the same time! I will delete my thread off the boards right now.

Hugs,

Artlady

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.

AHHHH, well I did not realize that and actually hae been reading the chart left to right on all lines, which means my cables are reversed.....I don't THINK it matters as long as I do the same on sleeve two.

I'll post a picture of my sleeve, let me know if you think I should start over.

Sorry, I had to change computers to post the picture. I think the fact that I read the chart Left to left means that the cables are switched, does this matter??

I don't think it really matters but I would probably do the same for the cables on the fronts and back to keep in with cables going the opposite way
