I am super new to knitting here. I used to knit a long time ago, and I have completely forgotten everything. I have also never tried to read a pattern before. So, before throwing myself into a project and getting hopelessly frustrated, I was hoping I could get some help and general tips.
I'm picking a hard pattern for a beginner, but I don't really want to make anything other than this. It's an 'Alexi Throw'.
Honestly, I don't know how to read the pattern. I looked up some of the abbreviations, but I'm confused on where to start. Could somebody please tell me where to look/read and possibly translate a bit? Any help is very much appreciated! Thank you in advance.
