These are a series of posts that illustrate the structure of various knitting stitches as they are formed, without knitting needles or other tools to obscure what’s happening.

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.
