Hi everyone!
Can you please explain how to read this as if I was 5?! :sob:

assuming this is for something round, and possibly for a 3 dimensional object, maybe the two green oblongs on the page.
this chart shows the pattern in rounds represented as rings on the chart.
the “x” is single crochet
the ^ over x is single crochet 2 together
the x inside v is a single crochet shell stitch
no clue why the rings are blank if they are single crochet while others are marked, since I don’t know what the item is
the red numbers are the rounds
the green chart tells you how many of each type of stitch is in the round, the circles tell you where they go in the round

Ok, i think i got it with that last sentence! So i probably have to assume that those white in the chart should be the same as the previous round (not sure why these instuctions are so complicated for me :sweat: )

not quite the same as the previous round, the green chart shows directions for the blank rounds.

The green chart is more confusing than the circle one in my opinion… Sure, it tells me how many single, increases and decreases are in each round… But WHERE do they go :sob:
What im thinking is they fall in the same place as the one in the previous round…
Edit: looking at the instructions again, that wouldnt make any sense … Back to square 1 ugh :sob:

Does this happen to be a free pattern you can refer us to? If not, I really can’t help further.

No its not, which is why i havent shared more :frowning: but the picture i sent (the one with the letter “A” on it) is the very 1st part which creates an oval/long circle and the rest of the pattern is as confusing

Sorry I’m not more helpful. Hopefully you can get the designers help.

Grrr, did the designer warn you that pattern is in graph form?
By the way, is the pattern from an English designer? If so, the patterns usually adhere to the yarn council guidelines.
I find that foreign patterns do not adhere to yarn council guidelines and I can’t find the guidelines they are using.,

What country was it made in? That might give you someplace to look for interpretation.

This is horrible! :rofl::rofl:
I thought I had it figured out, but I was wrong after looking again. The only thing I can figure is the first number in the row is how many sc there would be, and then the decrease or increase is added on. :woozy_face:

I think the rounds that are missing, are where the increases are in the increases from the round before, whereas when there is info in the ring, the placement of a stitch is being changed.
