Is it just a chart? I’d think there would be a key or some kind of indication if there are some written instructions that go with it. My best guess is those squares with the slash marks are indicating decreases, especially if you’re knitting in the round.
It’s really nice looking, anyway!

Welcome!
I agree with Shintoga, the orange squares with the line through are decreases, ssk so that they slant to the left.
The yellow squares are “no stitch” squares which serve to keep the chart squared and are there due to the decreases. Skip over them.

Heres the directions

The chart really presents the directions for toe decreases. Work the decreases on the stitches that are on the needle and ignore the yellow squares.

So the squares with the lines through them are the stitches i decrease
