Assembly of Alphabet Charts

I have included the approximate letter size for some of the patterns (towards the end, when I hit the jackpot, I did not do as much counting.) This should make it easier to choose my favorite!

  8. I love the information you have here, and just to add some 'light reading' I just came across an antique pattern library with various needlework references, some including alphabets (I've only gone down to the B's, but found ArteEDiletto and BrownFiletCrochet both with alphabets)and just a multitude of beautiful patterns: http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/completelist.htm

    1. You need to plan carefully when you start knitting a charted letter. Are you making the dishcloth from the top down or the bottom up? Are you starting the letter on the right side or the wrong side of the fabric? These can all affect how the final product looks.

      If you are knitting the square from the bottom up, then on the RS you want to work a chart from the bottom to the top, right to left. On the wrong side you would work the chart left to right. If you are knitting your project from the top down, you need to reverse the above. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    3. I'm sorry that I don't have any written charts for the letters. The charts linked to in this post are just links to other people's designs, they aren't my designs. Good luck!
