Puzzled by all the symbols on knitting charts? Do you hesitate to pick up a pattern with a cable chart even though you really want to try cables? Have you turned away from books of beautiful stitch patterns only because they are charted? This is the class for you! Once you know how they work, working from charts is often faster than reading every line of knitting directions. We'll explore a variety of knitting charts, both flat and in the round, in color and in stitch pattern, to get you more familiar with the basics of knitting from charts.
