So I came across the idea to use what programmers call syntax coloring to help make written instructions easier to read (for some people; it’s harder for other people). I know a few people who find knitting charts difficult and also can find written instructions difficult. At least one of them leapt up and down with cries of joy at the sight of that webpage. What do you think? Would you be interested in separate versions of my patterns in this style? (It wouldn’t be difficult to make happen, I think. At least, I think it ought to be possible.)

I'm a knitting designer. I have three basic categories of things that I do.
I publish stitch patterns on the blog. Most of them are what I call secret code patterns: I encode the letters of words as numbers, chart the numbers on grids in various ways, and turn the results into lace knitting, mosaic knitting, other kinds of knitting, and needlework charts. I also publish a variety of other random stitch stitch patterns as they occur to me.
I also have patterns for sale on Payhip. These are mostly patterns for knitted accessories; there is also one crochet/knitting hat pattern
Finally, I write about knitting: I experiment with various knitting techniques, explain existing ones, and talk about fabric structure. I review knitting books. Most of all, I encourage you to try things out and see what you learn from them.
If you would like to donate monthly, you may help suggest words for me to encode at my patreon.
