“The squares of traditional knitting charts provide a graphic representation of knitting instructions. For many stitch patterns, charts resemble the fabric produced when following said instructions: color patterning, cable crossings, groupings of knits and purls are fairly straightforward. But what about patterns that add and subtract stitches, either singly or in groups, all in one row or spread across several? Gridded charts can’t convey the shifting fabric created by such arrangements of stitches.”
