Donut: a needlework chart for any craft that uses them

The random number generator picked Donut from the suggestions for this post, suggested by Susanne V, one of my Patreon supporters.

I also developed a complicated knitting stitch pattern for Donut, 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 at least some digital art 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. (I try to make it look like knitting when it’s got floats short enough for easy stranded knitting.)

Haven border: a needlework chart for any craft

The random number generator picked Haven from the suggestions for this post, suggested by Emma B, one of my Patreon supporters. This pattern looked best to me as a border or a stripe to be incorporated in a larger piece. The speckles in the center line reminded me of the speckles in the Norwegian lusekofte sweaters, so I made those speckles into a coordinating pattern to surround the border in the illustration.

Idyll cross stitch project

I’ve been delighted on a number of occasions to see knitters use my stitch patterns or needlework charts to make things, but I haven’t had the good fortune until recently to see other crafters make use of my work.

RJ Nelson has kindly sent in a photo of a cross-stitched bookmark using my Idyll needlework chart as the border. She’s done such beautiful work with it!
