Sample text

Charts are read exactly as the knitting is worked – from the bottom to the top. After the last row at the top has been worked, repeat the sequence from row 1 if required. Each symbol represents an instruction. Symbols have been designed to resemble the actual appearance of the knitting. This is more difficult to do with multicolour slip-stitch patterns, which have to be knitted before the mosaic effects become obvious. Before starting to knit, look up all the symbols on your chosen chart (see here for a key to the stitch diagrams) so that you are familiar with the techniques involved.

Eliminating ends If you are working a complex design it is always best to look for ways of eliminating ends so that you can cut down the amount of time that will be needed to sew them all in. Look for shapes that perhaps have an outline, as with a diamond motif. Take a length of the yarn required to work the whole motif and fold it in half. On the centre stitch of the motif, loop the fold over the right-hand needle. 1 On the next row, take one end of the yarn to the right and the other to the left, linking the outline and background colours on each row.

This makes the process less fiddly and is less likely to get your various yarns tangled.
