Knitting Chart–Translated.

I had a comment on the difficulty reading my pattern fo the Bobble Cable Ascot.  If you are a new knitter, and have not used charts before, I can understand how this could be confusing.  The original pattern is :

    What a lovely ascot. I look forward to making one. And thank you for the written pattern. After 45 years of knitting and crocheting, I can read crochet charts like words in a book, but knitting charts are like translating a foreign language. LOL
