Work all charts as follows : Work the chart from right to left, starting with the two blue border stitches, work across to center stitch. For the second half of the row, work chart again from right to left, ignoring the 2 blue border stitches and working them at the end, in place of the center stitch. The blue stitch boxes on the right and left ends of the chart rows represent the two border stitches and the center stitch. Stitches in pink section represent the stitches that are repeated. With the exception of rows with double yarn overs, WS rows are worked as follows : k2, purl across to last two sts, k2 On rows where double yarn overs occur, on the return WS row, you will p1, k1 into double yarn overs that occurred on the previous RS row.
