I am stuck on how to read a lace pattern chart! I am knitting Lisa Richardson’s cable sweater issued in the Rowan magazine RM002-00010-CableSweater-UK - the picture below shows the pattern chart for knitting the body.
I understand that the red box is for repeating patterns in the row - but how come for row 13 & 14 the box shifts to one side? What is the point of that? I am knitting the smallest size and the instructions for row 13 doesn’t show anything special other than work the chart pattern, essentially.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
