[one_half]Dorothy Reade believed that charts should give knitters an idea of what a knitted stitch would look like when it was completed. She was only partially successful in achieving her goal. Today chart symbols are even clearer, and with a bit of practice most knitters can learn to knit lace, cables, and other texture patterns quickly by following charts.

I would like to give my sincere thanks to Dorothy Reade’s daughter, Donna Nixon, for her amazing generosity in sharing her time, information, and her mother’s work with me.
