I wanted to share with you this link. Michael Sellick from The Crochet Crowd recently posted a series of lessons on how to read crochet charts. I was surprised at how easy it is.
A friend gave me a [I]Crochet Magic[/I] magazine years ago, and it pretty much ONLY has directions in charts. I learned to read them then, and have loved them ever since! So intuitive.
Now knit charts? They don’t make nearly as much sense to me as crochet charts do. I have successfully followed knit charts and have even created a few for personal use, but understanding the logistics of the more complicated ones makes my head hurt!
Thanks for the link. I’m sure it will help lots of people.
