How to create your own text chart
Use the Alphabet Chart and the blank charts included with the pattern and the template at https://bit.ly/readthishat to design your own.
Step 1: Pick your text
We've created a Google Sheet template here https://bit.ly/readthishat. Click the blue button in the upper right hand corner, "Use Template" to import it into your Google Drive. We created a screencast to show how to use the template to find the perfect text for your unique hat:
Note: you need a Google account in order to use this template. If you don't already have one, they are free to create.
Step 2: Make your chart
Use the input variables from the Template along with the alphabet chart included on page 3 of the Read This! Hat pattern to fill in the charts on the bottom of pages 4 & 5 with your text motif. Note that the text should read from left to right but you will knit the pattern from right to left, as indicated in Charts A & B.
