I’ve knitted for years, mostly written directions except for picture or fair isle knitting.; I recently bought a book on knitted lace shawls and the charts are puzzling to me. I searched through the book and it doesn’t explain further, so I might be the only dense person who needs clarification. My question it this: part of the chart is explained at the bottom as “rep” [section of chart shown] “work rep only when working in round” Sometimes this is a very large section, other times, a small part of the chart.
Your help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
