how the 2015 needlework might look as stranded knitting

2015: an updated needlework chart for any craft

A while ago, I encoded the year 2015 as both lace and a needlework chart. I didn’t really have a good routine in place for my needlework charts at that time. I don’t know that I’ll do something like this for all of them, but here’s a new post for the 2015 needlework with a proper chart, written instructions, and also an image showing how the pattern looks when it’s repeated.

I did make one change in how the chart repeats because it was easy and I like it better.

  • 2015 has a repeat of 6 + 7 columns and 10 or 10 + 5 rows. (end after either row 5 or 10.)
  • In the written instructions, color A is the light squares above, and color B is the dark.
  • The written instructions below are formatted for stranded knitting, but it is my hope that they could be translated into instructions for other crafts. For instance, if working filet crochet, 1A could be one open square and 2B could be two filled-in squares.
  • Designers, please feel free to use this in your patterns (no need to ask). I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
  • My blog posts and free stitch patterns are supported by subscriptions on Patreon or donations to my Paypal tip jar in the sidebar. If you appreciate my work, please consider helping out. Thanks!
