As promised to myself, I cast on the Flower Basket Shawl after chores were done. Wimped out and used the 7 stitch cast on, then ran into a conundrum. When I follow the chart for this pattern, should I read every row in the same direction, or should I read the chart back and forth? And do I start reading in the bottom right corner or the bottom left corner of the chart? Does it even matter? Since every second row is just purled, I suspect it does not matter, but it can't hurt to make sure! Now do you see why I used the easy cast on? I am easily confused!
I left a comment asking this question (the chart one, not the rhetorical one) at the knit along. I'll lurk in the comments over there for a while in case I get a response.
By the way, I've made it to row 6 and had to frog twice. Perserverance is going to be an absolute necessity for this project!
P.S. Someone has finished this already! Go here to view. It is really, really lovely. Congrats!
