Each chart is offered in two formats – Symbols and Colour Blocks, and Symbols Only – so that you can use the one that works best for you.

Our charts use letters and numbers, rather than symbols, so you can follow them with ease. You can print out pages to follow if you like!

The legend for each pattern tells you the size, how many threads, and a fabric suggestion.
