Giraffes This Way and That
The little herd of giraffes is ready to go to my neighbour for her granddaughter. By reading Sandra Jager's chart left to right on one sock and right to left on the other, I made the giraffes face different ways on each sock. Both were knitted upside down and inside out. I have a notion that working inside out makes it easier to reverse the chart without boggling my mind, because I'm only working each row in relation to the previous one, rather than to the whole design. Though the real reason I work in purl is so that I don't pull the floats too tight.
