Doodle worked as a knit/purl pattern

A while back, I doodled up a chart. (It’s not secret code.) I’m gradually working through making it into various kinds of knitting. Here it is as a knit/purl pattern. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the stitch pattern, the yarn, or my gauge, but the pattern in my swatch is really only visible with bright light coming from an angle. I suspect it’s mostly the yarn; my next knit/purl pattern will be done with thicker yarn.

Nonetheless, I’m happy with the result.

Notes:

  • This is a stitch pattern such as might be found in a stitch dictionary. This is not a pattern for a finished object.
  • Doodle is a multiple of 8+1 stitches and 12+1 rows.
  • Designers, please feel free to use this in your patterns. I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
