This week, Kelley chats with TECHknitter about her “chart chart”
technique and all things lace. Kelley first begins by giving a brief
overview of lace knitting and its components, along with the different
ways that lace patterns can be presented. Kelley goes over both written
and charted directions, before introducing TECHknitter’s “chart
chart” method, which she first posted about on her blog back in 2007. Learn more about this compelling way to knit lace as TECHknitter chats about the history of lace and charting methods, as well as helpful tips and tricks.
And TECHknitter was kind enough to share some handy visual aids that show the “chart chart” method in action!
