After two years of making a stitch pattern from the digits of the new year, I decided to keep going. This one is a bit different from my usual lace – because of the placement of the yarnovers, I decided not to add extra plain rows. This is reversible garter lace, but not terribly tricky.
As some of my stitches do, it reminds me of plant cells under a microscope. I like it as a serviceable, reversible, non-curly, basic stitch pattern; it’s nothing spectacular.
Last year I made a stitch pattern for 2015 using the digits of the year as the basis for the design. I had so much fun doing it that I thought I’d do it again.
Happy New Year! May the year ahead be peaceful and content, with lots of time for knitting or whatever things you like to make.
Just on a whim, I decided to turn 2015 into charts for knitting and other needlework. The lace design is a ribbing pattern—I inserted the purl columns to simplify the design. It seems entirely likely that this is very similar to some other already designed lace; the simpler the encoding, the more likely the design is to exist, in my experience. Optional beads could be inserted in the central purl column on rows 1 and 5.
Enjoy, and have a happy new year!
