I found a pattern for a pair of socks that I think I'll make. I have a question though, the charts are numbered with odd numbers up the right side and even up the left side. I made an afghan like that and found that I had to read the odd numbered rows from right to left and then the even numbered rows from left to right. I am attaching the pattern that was free to download from Ravelry. Would someone please look at charts on page 4 and see what you think. My best guess is that all the rows start at the right-hand side and work left, then reading the even rounds, change the dots (purl) to dots (knit) and visa versa.
After studying it for awhile, I see that the pattern is bilaterally symmetrical, so perhaps it doesn't really make a difference. I'd still like someone else take a look at it to let me know what you think.
I'm also trying to find a good way to begin rows with purl stitches without getting "ladders".
