Happy New Year! A free stitch pattern: 2015

Just on a whim, I decided to turn 2015 into charts for knitting and other needlework. The lace design is a ribbing pattern—I inserted the purl columns to simplify the design. It seems entirely likely that this is very similar to some other already designed lace; the simpler the encoding, the more likely the design is to exist, in my experience. Optional beads could be inserted in the central purl column on rows 1 and 5.

Enjoy, and have a happy new year!

Notes:

  • This is a stitch pattern such as might be found in a stitch dictionary. It is not a pattern for a finished object. You will need to add selvedges or some other form of knitted stitches to either side.
  • 2015 is a multiple of 10+1 stitches and 6 rows.
  • I’ve made a stitch map for it.
  • Designers, please feel free to use this stitch in your patterns.

Abbreviations:

  • k: knit.
  • k2tog: knit 2 stitches together as if they were 1. (Right-leaning decrease)
  • p: purl.
  • ssk: slip each of the next 2 stitches as if to knit, then knit them together through the back loop. (Left-leaning decrease)
  • yo: yarnover.

Row 1 (RS): *p1, ssk x 2, yo x 2, p1, yo x 2, k2tog x 2, work from *, p1.
Row 2 (WS): k1, *p2, (k1, p1) in double yo, k1, (k1, p1) in double yo, p2, k1, work from *.
