I feel silly, but I don't understand how to do the chart.

Jeane, I've revised it a bit and added instructions without a chart. Basically, you begin at the bottom right corner. Each space in the chart corresponds to one stitch. Each row of the chart is one round of work. When you get to the end of the chart row (working right to left), repeat until you reach the end of the round. Then, move up and work the second row of the chart.
