I am started Forbes Forest and I am sure that other people more experienced with charts have found a solution to this problem. I am having a hard time tracking the chart for the middle frond cable after I get past the 20 rows of the R and L zigzag cable. I get to say, row 23 or 24, and I have to stop and count up the rows from the bottom of the frond cable to find myself.
I tried making an excel chart of the whole thing and pasting the rows that would be 14-20 of the frond cable into the chart in the 'blank spot', hoping that I'd come to a point where the whole pattern was a cut/paste repeat but that has not happened I just have a large and hard to read chart that I keep having to count/paste. I suppose that is better than counting while knitting (and I can always print out new sheets and I tick off/mark up the current one. Any tips for following this chart?
