How To Read Knit Scheme
You should read the scheme from right to left and from bottom to up, i.e. the same way as we hold our work while knitting.
Sometimes you can find schemes with wrong side rows. In this case you should strictly follow the scheme. You can usually find the quantity of pattern sts in the scheme. Pattern is a part of ornament, which consists of group of sts, which are repeated in the ornament certain times. It can be shown in the scheme with arrows or frame. The quantity of sts, which you take for your work should always be multipled to pattern. Sometimes in order to make symmetry you should add some sts, which are not counted in the pattern.
