Oh, come on, you beat me all the time. And the nice thing is that when I see that you’ve answered a How-To, you’re always right!
Thanks so much! So after I print the graph paper I should just color the squares into the design I want right?
Next question ~ how do you read knitting graph paper?
Just color the squares you want. If there’s a design you want to copy on there, one thing the kids at school do is put the drawing behind the paper they’re drawing on and tape it to the window. The light makes it easy to see.
Graphs are read from right to left on the right side of the knitting and from left to right on the wrong side, one stitch per block.
