This is the chart for the Bromeliad Cable by Lisa Shroyer, from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts, 2011.

Please note: this chart key contains symbols for all nine stitch patterns contained in the article "The Gift of a Stitch," so there are symbols shown that aren't used in the Bromeliad Cable pattern.

to print a clear and large chart, go up to the tool bar, under view and zoom in on the chart as much as you want. Select it and then print it at the zoom size. That worked for me. I didn't have much luck enlarging  the chart in the word programs, but the zoomed one came out clear.

Hi CatherineS593,

No stitch means you just go on to the next square in the chart because you don't have enough stitches on your needles yet.  The chart has this because later on in the pattern there will be an increase and the chart will need this space for the added stitch(es).  Hope this helps.

Full view would not print for me.  I got an empty rectangle on the page even after going into preferences & clicking to make the chart fill the page. Karway

I haven't worked off a chart before, but I think I'm getting it figured out pretty well.  However, I do have a question about it:  What in the world do I do with the "no stitch" stitches?  I see the Bromelaid Cable pattern has them, and I don't know what to do, because, as far as I know, I've never come across that before.... 

About printing the key, I opened it in full size and printed it in black & white, and that was a little fuzzy.  But, since the pattern repeat symbol is in red, I reprinted it in color, and that came out just fine.

oh yes, I also changed the direction of the layout to landscape. Beautiful result.

I viewed in large screen and then on the print menu I enlarged it to 120%.

I copied the full size view of the stitch chart and then pasted the picture into Microsoft Word and was able to enlarge the guide enough for it to be easily readable. The pattern chart was a bit fuzzy when I did the same to enlarge that, but it's still easily readable, and easy to figure out since the stitch guide is so clear.

I should have read other peoples comments first then I would have learned there's a view full size option... you don't really notice that when you're trying to focus on the chart.  Most sites you click directly on a pic to view full size.

This key chart is very blurry, hard to read.

I got the key to be readable by clicking on the "View Full Size" and using the highest resolution on my printer.  But I admit that enlarging it further would be ideal.

The chart key could not be printed  large enough for me to read and put in my knitting bag.  Therefore the chart is useless.  It can be enlarged and viewed on my computer but I don't carry that with me.
