This could have been mentioned in the forums somewhere, but i wasn't able to find any... :D
so I was desperately looking for chart generators, since I learned knitting by looking at charts.. and I found a perfect one!
this chart generator has most of the common stitches..
and it does pretty much everything for me, so it's perfect!
also, if you contact the creator by using the feedback for any bugs or suggestions, the creator will take that into account and somehow change it, if possible
I myself wanted to read the odd rows right to left and even rows left to right, so I emailed the creator and the next thing i realize is that that option is available!
it's really good if you like chart over written instructions, i think
just throwing this information out there
