RE: Learning to Read Patterns Need help

Hand knitting and knitting machines are not identical. I have had a knitting machine and I hand knit. Contact the manufacture of the machine and they should have a book telling you what their symbols mean. For hand knitting-send me an e-mail('s an "L" not a "1" and I'll send you a booklet that explains it pretty well.
