Some patterns use symbols instead of abbreviations, and work in a diagram format rather than written out. This can be extremely helpful to include in any written pattern, since crochet is a worldwide craft, and some crocheters may not be able to read your language.
Something I see a lot is “I don’t know how to read charts” and “Can someone translate this chart into a written pattern?” There was a point in my life that I didn’t know how to read charts either! And then I learned. :-)
I made a beautiful shawl from a charted pattern that I hope to show off tomorrow.
I’m not saying that reading charts is for everybody. There are things I’ve tried time and time again and not been able to grasp. But please, at least give it a good “college try”. Check out online tutorials or videos, however you learn best, and play around with it. You might just surprise yourself. :-)
