    CHART NOTES
    The chart on the following page was made to represent your knitting when you’re looking at it from the right side. When knitting flat read the instructions for odd (right side) rows from right to left, and the instructions for even (wrong side) rows from left to right. When knitting in round, read all instructions from right to left. The numbering of rows/rounds is placed at the side where you have to start reading the chart. The grey highlighting indicates the pattern repeat – the contents of the round brackets in written instructions. The chart depicts rows/rounds 3 to 25 only.
