I’ve received several requests to give some examples of using repeats in a chart. This post will cover the basics of doing that.
Notice that when Stitchmastery generates the written instructions it looks for patterns in the text and does its best to condense any repeated portions of a row that it finds. So, for example, instead of writing;-
yo, ssk, yo, ssk
(yo, ssk) x 2
The red Border stands out and, with the edited key entry, is quite clear to the knitter following the chart that the middle portion must be worked 5 times. However, as the Border is only a visual element on the chart, the written instructions do not match the chart.
