Okay, I keep seeing patterns for things with charts, but the thought of having to look at every single little square to figure out what stitch to do, or to count every single square out to figure out what the next technique is.... :ick: ! I know that I'm limiting myself by not wanting to do charts, but the thought of having to look at a chart with those little boxes and watch what I'm doing while I knit...well, I don't know. I follow written directions fine...I wish the charted patterns that I like had written directions with them. Yes, I could write it out, but again, I'd still have to look at all of those tiny boxes to figure it out.
It's not a matter of me thinking I can't do it...I'm not so sure I want to. :oops: It seems like a lot of extra work.
Does anybody have any helpful advice for patterns with charts? Do you enlarge the patterns before beginning to make it easier to read them? Is it as distracting as I think it would be to read the pattern from a chart while you're knitting?
