Knitting charts are read from left to right but numbered from right to left.
This may be a really newbie question but:
Why are they numbered from right to left?
Row 1 always starts on the right side.
Should they not number the first row on the left side then if you knit from left to right?
(I am trying to knit a sweater’s left front side).
The text says to “begin with ‘row 2’” which starts on the left side of the chart so this kind of makes sense but what happens with “row 1” of the chart?
Do I ignore it altogether?
The text says to knit 4 rows of “row 2”.
But if I begin with “row 2” as the text says, I’d be knitting only 3 rows of “row 2” before the pattern changes (from looking at the chart).
Your help is appreciated!
