Symbols in Charts and how to follow them

 List of Symbols and how to follow them

How to follow the graphic chart?
Follow the stitch symbols in the chart from the right to the left, from bottom to top.
Start your work by row no. 1 by  the stitches before first right arrow (i.e. from odd row numbers) , continue by repeating  the sequence of stitch symbols between the two arrows and finish the row by the stitches after the second (left) arrow.
Usually the row no. 2 (as like as other  WS rows) is not displayed in the chart.
It means: you will work all the WS stitches as you see them (i.e. knit knitted sts, purl purled sts, unless individual signs say otherwise)
If there are no arrows in the chart, you have to repeat the complete sequence of the symbols in every horizontal row.
