Cariad: a free needlework chart for any craft

Cariad: a free needlework chart for any craft, by Naomi Parkhurst

The random number generator picked Cariad for my first encoded word post of this month, suggested by Sarah Dawn, one of my Patreon supporters. Cariad means love in Welsh.

I liked this chart as a band pattern, rather than an allover one, but it might work well allover if every other horizontal repeat were offset halfway.

I usually develop a complicated knitting stitch pattern for each word, but I also like to provide a basic chart for any craft that’s worked on a grid: beads, cross stitch, whatever. I also try to provide an image of the pattern repeated all over not as a chart. It doesn’t necessarily look like a finished object for any particular craft, but I just want to give a sense of it in use.

Doodle: a free needlework chart for any craft

Doodle: a free colorwork chart for any craft

Instead of doing a secret code stitch pattern, I was doodling around on graph paper, and here we are: a chart. It can be used for stranded knitting or whatever else one might make that uses a chart like this.

I might play around with this in weeks to come. Look for variations!
