HOW TO: Crochet Chart Reading

I found some nice pattern in my UFO’s and draw the chart:

Read the chart bottom up and starting from the left side.
Each row changes its direction:
  • first row (starting chain) - from left to right
  • second row - from right to left
  • etc, like a zigzag.
Some charts don’t have arrows and rows’ numbers, but there is a tip: the chains at the beginning of the row show the direction.
