i am very new to knitting (only been doing it a couple of months)
but i have gotten pretty good at reading patterns:woohoo: . i particularly love to knit hats:heart: , and i recently came across [COLOR=“Blue”]this beautiful beret[/COLOR]! i thought i’d give it a go but to my horror, the mastermind behind this piece did not write out the instructions:oo:…she charted them in stead:whoosh: here is the [COLOR=“Blue”]legend [/COLOR]she provided, and here is the [COLOR=“Blue”]chart[/COLOR]
now here is my question:
should i ignore all the grey boxes that according to the key means “no stitch” and if that is so…dose that mean row1 only has 2 stitches, a twisted stitch and a yo? and if that is the case…what should i do with the other 6 stitches on my needle (we had to cast 8s on 4 dpn’s)? slip them and then knit row 2? those “no stitch” boxes are really throwing me off becasue from what i have read about knit charts, EVERY box is supposedly a stitch in the pattern.
if someone can help me decipher this chart i would really appreciate it. i was looking fwd to starting this project sometime this week.
thanks in advance
