This skill hasn't been one I've put a lot of time in on as it really confuses me. Working today with my machine knitting friends we figured out how to read a chart in Mary Anne Oger's new book "The Handbook For Manual Machine Knitters" for the leaf pattern.
Our swatches looked wonderful. Ellen did a one leaf swatch and I did a 3 leaf swatch. When practicing something I like to do it more than once to get it locked into my brain.
It was a fun day knitting. I look forward to putting this leaf pattern on a project.
