A knitting chart is a graphic representation of a stitch pattern or knitted fabric. Charts are often provided in patterns as a more intuitive and shorthand way of showing how to work particular stitch patterns that would otherwise require too much space or time to write and read if provided as text instructions only. They give a concise visual of the stitches and techniques involved in the stitch pattern, illustrate how your fabric will knit up, help you track your place and catch errors more easily as you work, and help you learn and memorize a new stitch pattern more quickly. As such, they can be immensely useful for projects involving intricate textured, lace, or cabled motifs.
