charlotte chart

Oh, I should also mention that I put together a chart, based on the charts from Jenny and Uli, pulling together elements of both that have facilitated my Charlotte progress. The chart lists row numbers, colors, pattern rows, how many stitches you have to knit before starting the lace repeats, the number of lace repeats on each side, total stitches within the repeats, and total stitches overall. It also has the lace repeats along the bottom.

I added the number of stitches within the lace repeats column because I found that rather than count all stitches at the ends of rows, I was counting the ones before, after, and in between the lace repeats, and then making sure that everything added up. I added the stitches to knit before the repeats because that's one of the main pieces I was using Jenny's chart to double-check. And, I'm less inclined to learn the symbols on the chart, so it was easier to just write out in abbreviations each lace repeat pattern (there are only three, after all), and to write out both sides, mirrored, rather than try to transpose in my head. Of course, at this point, I have most of the thing memorized anyway.

The thing is made in Word and fits on a legal-sized sheet of paper (that's the big size, right)? If anyone wants a copy to complement the Koigu original, let me know. I don't think I have much of a readership on this thing :) but there's the offer, anyway.
