Confused about chart for baby blanket
I want to make sure I'm reading the directions correctly before I start:

It says:

"Read charts beginning at the bottom right corner. Row 1 and odd rows are read left to right. Row 2 and even rows are read right to left. Each square represents one stitch."

I guess my confusion is that I looked up how to read charts and most instructions say the odd rows are read right to left and even left to right.

But not with this particular chart? So I start in the bottom LEFT corner? (It says bottom right, BUT reading Row 1 left to right would be bottom left corner...?) Am I understanding this correctly??

Thanks for any clarification.

It depends on the pattern; most of them are read odd rows right to left, even left to right. Follow the instructions for the individual pattern.

On this one maybe it's because you work 3 rows of seed st, so the first row of the pattern is row 4, an even row? But being the first row of the stitch pattern, it's row 1? Or maybe it's because it's a CP pattern and their charts are somewhat confusing to follow. The first 2 rows are just knit plain anyway, so if there's an extra row in there it won't matter.

Dunno which, but just do as the notes say.
