Am I the only person who has trouble reading knitting charts (either lace or colorwork) because of their small to miniscule size?  I have never seen anyone mention this problem in any knitting magazine, book, blog or forum.  I gave up counted cross stitch years ago because I couldn't easily read the charts any more.  Now so many of the new knitting patterns include charts that are difficult to read or totally unreadable for my OLD eyes.  Magnifying glasses or strips aren't too practical because you can't see enough of the pattern when using them.  I'm not sure what the answer to my dilemma is.  Maybe a large size option like the large print size offered in some books.  Any thoughts fellow knitters?

If you have Excel you could retype the chart and enlarge the font so that you can see.

I use a copy machine to blow up cross stitch patterns.  That should work for knitting charts too.
