      Hi there, I’m not quite sure I understand what you are saying, as all of our patterns are written patterns. Are you asking if we have charts for our patterns? If so, sometimes we do have charts it just depends on what’s necessary for the pattern or if the designer chooses to provide additional information in a chart. I hope this helps! – Nicola, Editor

      Ciao, non sono del tutto sicuro di capire cosa stai dicendo, poiché tutti i nostri modelli sono modelli scritti. Stai chiedendo se abbiamo grafici per i nostri modelli? Se è così, a volte abbiamo dei grafici, dipende solo da cosa è necessario per il modello o se il designer sceglie di fornire informazioni aggiuntive in un grafico. Spero che aiuti! – Nicola, redattore

    Absolutely. Just continue in pattern and when you feel it is the right length, add the edging.

      Hello Marilyn! I’ve reached out to the designer for advice and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
