Is there an error? The full photo appears to show a correctly done cable in the bottom part, but incorrectly done cable in the top. The chart reflects the error of the top cable: Both cables in row 13 should be cable to the front., or cable left.
Is there a legend for the chart symbols? What does a single square represent? I’ve never done charts before.
Hi Brittany 🙂 Yes, here is a list of what each chart symbol mean: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/chart_knit.html
