I'm working on "hope" from Rowan 29 that a friend gave me and am wondering if all the Rowan charts don't include lines to grid out the stitches?? I got so confused with the cable symbols and how many stitches are above it, etc. I went along with a pencil and made my own grid....also, you start in the lower right corner of the chart, correct, and go R to L, then row 2 would be L to R?
I found that making the chart into a graph type chart (just making lines in it to make boxes) helped tons - now I can see how many stitches are in a blank space! This is my first chart (probalby not the best choice) but I figure dive in full force and learn a bunch of new stuff at once! I'm also doing the cable without a cable needle for the first time too! But, I figure when it's done I will have many valuable new skills.
