What do mean by „No Stitch“ in a Chart I am following a Chart Pattern and am baffled by No Stitch, even though going through it several times After the symbol (\) for knit 2 together (decrease in toe part), it shows symbol for „No Stitch“

Do the squares represent how many stitches you should have on your needle? I’m finding my next row have way too many stitches Ssk and Yo and Ssk sts

Comment from : Anna Tronson

I enjoy lace work I found my very first chart very daunting but here's what I've found after just diving in and deciding that struggling a bit was okay: brbrEvery chart has a rhythm to it For every knit2tog there'll be a yarn over somewhere to fix the balance brbrThis is not just the case for lace charts Every pattern will have a pattern, so to speak I recommend: just dive in and find the rhythm to your pattern It might be a bit hard at first but Norman is right: you'll soon learn the language and you'll be fine creating knitted magic! brbrAnd don't forget to enjoy the ride!

and I forgot to mention that I found this video really helpful as well! Sorry!
Comment from : Bob Lowney

Bob Lowney
totally agree that written instructions and a chart are both visual!
Comment from : Bob Lowney

Bob Lowney
with a chart, why can't you use the terms even rows and odd rows instead of RS and WS? with written instructions, that is okay, but a chart displays numbered rows I recommend crossing out RS and WS in the legend and write in odd and even
Comment from : Bob Lowney

Just checked out your website and it's a godsend I was totally bamboozled by the instruction to 'repeat in pattern' but you've given me hope that I can actually do this project! Thank you for your clear instructions

I have been using charts for quite some time now I currently have a chart for a sock I am knitting that starts at row -4 and ends row 8 I understand the legend, but have never seen a chart staring in the negative numbers None of my experienced knitting friends understand it either Are you able to shed some light on what this means?

Patricia Jones
You have such excellent and simplified directions to learn on how to knit with a chart 😊 Do you have a list of all possible stitches with their symbols for a chart? If so I would appreciate a copy of them, so I can study them and be able to breeze through any pattern Thanks 😊

Michele Tsuzuki
Hi Norman, Wow You can write Japanese! I remember when I lived in the United States, when I saw a knitting book, there were only text and there were no charts at all… I was wondering how these people can knit by text only instructions 😳 In Japan, most instruction books are mainly charts and rarely explained only with letters It’s good to learn and understand both text only and chart 😊
Comment from : Michele Tsuzuki

Tall Cedars
Thank you for the instructions Norman I am an intermediate beginner sock knitter about to read my first chart With bad eyes my chart will be in large print The sticky note idea is a good one although I would like to see what other methods there are Will check on YT in the meantime, happy knitting!

Teresa Scully
Thank you again for another informative video! Charts gave me anxiety but when you said the right leaning slash meant K2tog because it's a right leaning decrease, I got it! Sometimes it's the smallest little thing that makes it all go together Thank you! I am learning so much from your videos!

Hallo Norman, ich habe deinen Kanal vor kurzem entdeckt, was mir besonders gefällt ist deine unaufgeregt Art Ich habe mit 4 Jahren Stricknadeln in die Hände bekommen, seit mehr als 58 Jahren stricke ich nun, dass was ich als Kind fabriziert habe, weit weg von schön Du sagst in einem Video, Chart lesen ist wie eine Sprache lernen, stimmt absolut und auch die Fingerfertigkeit würde abgespeichertbrIn einen anderen Video hast du einen sehr schönen schwarz weißen Schal umgelegt, vielleicht verrätst du mir das Muster?brAnsonsten hoffe ich du hattest schöne Weihnachtstage somit wünsche ich letztlich ein gesundes und erfreuliches 2022🥂brLiebe Grüße aus Wien

Cleo Koch
Thanks for clearing this up I am a knitter who have always steered away from charts
Comment from : Cleo Koch

Thank you so much for the simple yet thorough explanation I've been trying to convince my older mother and aunt to learn charts for knitting and crocheting I'm brand new to both but realized how important charts are and picked up on it rather quickly

Comment from : Eva Muhlhause

Penny Pearson
Thank you Norman! I'm just getting started with charts (also for a lace pattern shrug) but I'm finding that when I knit the pattern, I run out of stitches on my needle before the current row ends! I know it's math with the yo (increase) and left/right slants (ssk, k2tog and k3tog) how the heck do you determine the actual number of stitches will be in a row? Add to that, the pattern needs to increase! [I am trying software, but it tells me I have too many or to few stitches in different rows!] Do you have another more advanced chart with these elements?
Comment from : Penny Pearson

Oh thank you!!!
Comment from : Debra Cubitt

I'm so glad YT gods blessed me with and recommended your videos to me I'm only on my 3 headband but I'm so excited about what can be made with two needles and yarn I sew charts and was fascinated by them and wanted to learn to read them, thanks for a clear explanation
Comment from : pesahson

Lacie Marie
I have been looking at lace sts, and noticed its in a chart I get the basics of charts but there is a orange outline around some of the sts Does that mean that's where the lace actually happens? Iv sometimes seen it on cables as well Harder than basic cables anyways As a beginner I wish I would've learned the chart over the written bc it shows st by st, and starting out that's sooo helpful IF you can understand a chart Thank you for taking time out of your day and making these videos that are so helpful to new knitters like myself When I want to learn a new st I always come to check and see if you have made a video on it
Comment from : Lacie Marie

You are a great teacher! Most helpful Thank you! 🥰
Comment from : Cosmoskatten

Enjoyed your explanation of why knitting symbols and charts are like a language I find seeing the pattern on a knitting chart gives a more spatial view of any repeated groups of stitches and how large they are Good explanation, slow enough for beginners, detailed enough for more experienced knitters Nice one
Comment from : kiwifeijoa

Joan Haney
You convinced me I will know longer translate charts to ‘knittish’ I’ll learn the symbols Thanks Norman!

Diana Britton
I recently subscribed to your channel and am impressed by your knowledge and teaching style While I have been knitting for 40 years I always learn something new I do have a comment/question about using charts, I cannot seem to wrap my head around the "no stitch" symbol One instructor said if you see that symbol you do nothing But how can you do nothing if there is a stitch to be worked? Thanks for your feedback
Comment from : Diana Britton

Roberta McIntyre
Hi Norman: I watched your tutorial for chart reading for beginners I'm not good at reading charts that have repeats Can you do a tutorial on those types of charts They are confusing because the repeat part can be at one side, in the middle, separate and etc I enjoyed your teaching

Comment from : Sandra Skibo

Leanna Stoufer
What a clear, concise, and encouraging explanation you've provided here! I have knit for years, but just recently started challenging myself with larger projects and more complex patterns I never learned to read a chart (use knittish), so I am brand-new to this Thank you for helping me learn!
Comment from : Leanna Stoufer

Very helpful! Should left-handed knitters reverse the directions in a chart? For example, should I knit the bottom line of a chart from left to right instead of right to left? Thanks! 🧶

Is it possible to put the knitting symbol somewhere in paper or the screen everytime you do tutorial? For example knitting from the back loop, you write ktb then you also put the symbol too Thank you
