Helpful Chart

Hello All -

I'm a reasonably new knitter - only been doing it for about a year now, and this is my second sweater. So suffice it to say it is somewhat of a challege for me. As a way to help me keep track of the lace pattern and everything else, I made this chart. By just working down vertical rows and making little check marks you will follow the pattern. And it is great for keeping track of increases and decreases: I've just been marking "1st - 2 - 3 - 4, etc"

Anyway, I have this as a .pdf, but I am not sure how to post it. If anyone wants a copy of the chart, and can tell me how I can put the .pdf file on the blog, I'd be happy to. It makes sense in my mind... and I think it could be helpful to others.

Hey, this is a great idea! Send me an email with the attachment and I will put it in the sidebar. Thanks for doing this!

This looks like it could be helpful. I haven't cast on yet - mainly because I've NEVER made a sweater before and I'm freaked out to start and have it be horrible!

I had a chart thing going, too. I always chart out decreases, etc...but my chart was not as well-organized as your appears to be. I wish we could get it in the pdf form. I would like to save the formatting and use it for future projects.

I just emailed it to chef messy, so it should be appearing soon. Hope it is helpful to all!
