Please use the written instructions, found in the Free Patterns section for specific instructions. This is the way I charted the Ladies Dolman pattern. I always begin with this format, then convert to written patterns when publishing. However, when drafting patterns just for myself, I knit directly from this chart. I keep a clean sheet of paper handy, and make notes to myself while knitting, especially if the shaping is a little complicated.
