i've found the best way for me to keep my place on a chart is to use a highlighter pen to mark each square off does anybody have any other ways that they use or does everyone do this i use a erasable hilighter so if i go wrong it rubs out

I work on copies of original charts and make markings on them to organize myself better.
For big, white and black charts I use some highlighter pens - different colors to highlight repeatable stitches and orientate better, especially when the symbols are very similar.
When I am finished with a part of the stitching I mark/cross it with one color.
I use the thread parking method and to be sure where the thread is parked I put a little dot on the chart, in a corner of a cross stitch cell where it comes out from the cloth.
So after the work is finished the charts I worked on are for no use - they are very messy - that is why I keep original charts clean.

A nifty thing: the yellow highlighter (only the yellow one) does not show if copied. That is why it  ...

Ещё так же купила гелевые пасты с ручкой, которые так же нужно замачивать в воде до исчезновения. Но их ещё не использовала

Я использую маркеры, которые смываются холодной водой. Очень удобно использовать при разметке канвы.

Hope you don't do this to an original chart.  Make a copy to work with.  My daughter uses a yellow highlighter.

I always make a copy and then use a 3B pencil to mark the stitches off. This is easily rubbed off.  Details Reply Post time 2013-8-27 08:28

I bought a bunch of those clear pockets that you put papers in to protect them. This doesn't doesn't work on all of them, but some that you find are slick enough that you can use whiteboard markers on them, that you can later erase.

I just coloring my chart with pencil color so I won't make to much mistake, and I make number at the side of the chart, so I always know where am I :D

I started off using an erasable highlighter too. But now I don't mark my patterns at all. I just seem to remember where I last am... but if I leave the pattern for a long time, I find post it arrow markers work. :)

Another good idea! I use highlighter to mark what I have finished, but sometimes I forget where I am!  Details Reply Post time 2014-1-22 02:38
