How to knit symbols??
If I have a symbol I want to knit into a project, how do i go about doing that? I heard something about "graphing". Is there a tutorial or an easy way to learn how to do this?

If you look for "Chart Knitting", you'll find some help.

I'm no expert, but I've knit a couple charts. They aren't as hard as you think they will be.

You usually start knitting on the bottom row, reading right to left. Then, you move up to the next row, and read the symbols left to right. Then, you keep going backwards and forwards through the rows. Your knitting will start to look like the image on the chart.
