Reading Charts


Symbolcraft is a universal form of knitting instructions. Instead of writing out a stitch pattern with words and
abbreviations, symbols are used. Each symbol represents the stitch as it appears on the right side of the work. For
example, the symbol for a knit stitch is a vertical line and the symbol for a purl stitch is a horizontal one. On right-side
rows, work the stitches as they appear on the chart—knitting the vertical lines and purling the horizontal ones. When
reading wrong-side rows, work the opposite of what is shown; that is, purl the vertical lines and knit the horizontal ones.
