    Ok….I can understand taking string and pins and a board and making the cable that way…….but what are the standard symbols for drawing a chart….????…….

    I see your posting as Step 1….string and pins….
    Step 2…chart it out for yourself
    Step 3…knit it into your project that you are making following your own chart…..thus the creation of your own knitted design…….

    It’s step 2 that I would like to know how to do…..any reference sheets for chart symbols….???…..beginner knitter….can’t afford the class….any advice you can share would be helpful…….

    • Every publication uses slightly different symbols. In the class I break down all the symbols and abbreviations so you can see what they have in common. Start by looking at published cable patterns and compare the words to the symbols. You can also find some chart symbols online at Craft Yarn Council’s website.

    Thank you for this helpful tip. I have an idea in my head for a cable and can’t seem to find anything like it. So now I think I might be able to create it 🙂
