Following a chart

I hope this isnt a stupid question. But if I am knitting in the round, and following a chart, do I read the chart left to right or right to left?

Thank you in advance, and if the answer is that it doesnt matter, enjoy a laugh on me! ( v :

It does matter. A chart is a diagram of the knitting as seen from the RS. So since you’re always working on the RS when you knit in the round, you read every row from right to left. When you knit flat, you read the WS rows from left to right.

Thank you so much! I have only just started knitting in the round and I have never followed a chart.

So far, I only knit flat and I haven’t tried to read a pattern yet, so this is helpful to know for when I finally get to that step. Thanks! :slight_smile:
