How to read chart pattern
by: Ratchadawan

In General, When you knit straight row by row, you read from right to left for the odd rows and left to right for the even rows. There will be a number indicating each row and you should start at the point where the number is. For example, 1 is on the right side, so you'll start at the right and move to the left. 2 is on the left and you start from left to right.

In circular knitting, all rows are read from right to left.

Here is a video I found that explain how to read the chart.

Have a great day!
