It will be wonderful if you can teach each symbol by demonstrating it with real yarn and needles

It is easy for you, Nancy, bc your mind has grasped what actually needs to be done To those of us still trapped in "deer in the headlights" mode, could you maybe use a chart and show us as you knit and explain the stitches? I know your video is 7 years old so you might think, "Emmmthat would be NO" Fair enough I totally get it But do you know anyone else, maybe, you could recommend if you aren't able to do it? Please? My Memere taught me how to knit 45 years ago but life, then motherhood, stepped in, then working to retirement took all my time And now I finally have the time to really learn and make something My much loved Memere is long gone and I don't know anyone who knows how to knit I don't want this beautiful art to be lost forever I want to learn it so I can teach my daughters when their lives slow down a bit I can knit and I've made some gorgeous blankets But I have no clue how to read a chart even after your very patient explanation I can envision the knits and the purls, and some of the other ones But the immediate bind offs and such have my brain shutting down And the "no stitch" is a whattheflip moment I can't even try to envision a no stitch although I really have tried Anyway, I hope I haven't put you off altogether Thank you for trying for those of us who truly want to learn but so far can't "get it" just yet

Hi, thank you for your video Unfortunately because I’m dyslexic knitting charts are both hard to see and incredibly confusing Many dyslexics have short term memory problems so you have to keep returning to the legend and it becomes exhausting and overwhelming after a while For me, a perfect tutorial would be a visual demonstration of working from the chart So, you would show how to work from the chart by actually knitting Many learners need a visual demonstration instead of just “talk and chalk” I’m not saying there is anything wrong with your video, and I thank you for your guidance, sadly it hasn’t eased any of the horrors of knitting charts The best knitting patterns for me personally are written instructions that tell you at the end of each line how many stitches on the needle It’s so frustrating, I would love to be able to knit something more interesting than a rectangle I did find wonderful instructions in a pattern once on ravelry for knitted leaves that included quite complicated stitches and short rows, the instructions were so well written that I could do it Unfortunately most patterns aren’t written so clearly or are just these confounded charts, which have brought me very close to giving up knitting 😔

Thankyou Nancy for your video, I am in my mid 60's and have been knitting for more than 50 years but have only ever used written patterns I have recently received some knitting books (with absolutely gorgeous patterns) that work with charts It was doing my head in, but having watched your tutorial, I think I may actually feel confident enough to attempt a relatively uncomplicated pattern now Wish me luck :)

When there is only a chart to knit from with no written instructions, how do you know how many to cast on?
Comment from : Trish Pawlowski

The problem I am having is that my work is in the round but it has a faux seam on each side So I start with the first two knit stitches, then I do the repeat stitches several times, then do I end with the stitches outside the repeat, or do I end with the repeat, then do the faux seam? I guess my question is, do I do those 'ending' stitches outside of the repeat twice (at the end of each side), or once at the end of the pattern?

How would you read this same pattern if knitting in the round?
Comment from : Handmade Stitch By Stitch

Thank you, this clears it up 😃
Comment from : woollychats

Hi: I am lost at the beginningso stitch 1 =knit, stitch 2 = knit, then bind off (I have 1 stitch left) Then I knit one again, bind off I still have one stitch left, correct? How come when I get to box 3 and 4 (which means "no stitch" according to the legend), I have two stitches on my needle? Thanks in advance!

I  would love to see another chart tutorial from you so it gets me up to speed on this chart  I love the charts and I do believe that I will be looking more to the charts than the pattern codes because the layout is like a house print and I can follow that much better  I would love to see another tutorial on the charting  Thank you

Thank you very much Nancy  I too am using knit picks yarn for the pattern  I'll see if I can contact the designer  This is my first lace project  I always enjoy a new challenge  This is certainly proving to be a challenge  I wish I knew an experienced knitter  Unfortunately I am the only one I know LOL  Thanks for your response

Hi Nancy, I'm not new to charts  When it comes to Aran knitting, I'm very experienced  However, I'm doing my first knitted shawl, the Gardner shawl by Joyce Fassbender  It's a square lace shawl knitted from the center out  I'm working the A panel now but starting at the B panel, there are red box repeats  I'm confused  Here's an example : (Work rows 1-24 twice  296 Sts at end of section)  (Move markers between stitch pattern repeats one stitch marker to the right on rows 7,15,23  Work boxed repeat pattern 3 times and 7 times for the second)  I'm still trying to wrap my head around this  Do you have any advice?
Comment from : Billy Bennett

yes, that helps a lot thank you  didn't know Know I know:) cool 
Comment from : tytbody

I don't understand why your chart symbols are different than the ones that are in the chart that I have Mine is a newer Vogue pattern and should not be different
Comment from : SheromeFarm

I don't see why you don't tell us how many times you repeat what is in the purple box  how do you know how many repeats? how do you keep tract of the repeats

I'm sorry you did not care for my video Hopefully you will find one more to your liking on YouTube Good Luck ; - )
Comment from : Nancy Wynn

Valerie bellecats
The video was okay Yet I think the chart could surely use one symbol for knit or purl? The odd and even rows are written out and would be a right or wrong side always? Why complicated the pattern so much with the same symbol meaning different things on different rows You never explain how to figure out how many stitches to cast on our that the numbers on the side are row numbers
Comment from : Valerie bellecats

@elenshina: The 'no stitch' is the representation for stitches not yet there This is a triangular pattern, so you start with a few stitches and increase, then you have to figure out when to start repeating the pattern in the blue box, because there will be too many stitches to fit the original pattern
Comment from : Ranbir Kaur

Hi, thank you for your video I still find it a little hard to understand though, for instance where it says 'no stitch' on the pattern/chart, the increases and repeats Could you explain this a little further please Thank you so very much :-)

I will watch a few more times It is still confusing but I really want to learn I don't think my brain is cooperating I just don't understand the repeat part I get the rest, the stitch blocks, rows, the right side & wrong side
Comment from : Betty Burdick

Seems likely! :)
