Demystifying Lace, Class 4: Follow your Chart!

Ever wondered what those weird symbols mean? Tried to make sense of all the grid lines? Welcome to the world of lace charts, which are a stitch-by-stitch representation of a knitted item! I’ll discuss how to read a chart, why they are set up in certain ways, and what that pesky ‘No Stitch’ designation really means.

Unfortunately due to a hand injury, I couldn’t demonstrate any techniques in this lesson – so it’s all about charts! I will demonstrate lots of stitches in the next lesson, including different variations of the YO, nupps and bobbles. I’ll also go more in-depth about cast-ons and double-yarn bind-offs – thanks for all your questions!
