Icicle: a needlework chart for any craft

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

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 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.)

Gansey: a needlework pattern for any craft

The random number generator picked Gansey from the suggestions for this post, suggested by Bookwyrm, one of my Patreon supporters. I should note that this is not a traditional gansey stitch pattern, though I have included a chart that makes it feasible to work as a knit-purl design. (A gansey is a kind of sweater from the island of Guernsey.)

Vulture outtake: a needlework chart for any craft

Sometimes when I design a larger stitch pattern, there’s a part of it that I think would be good as a smaller pattern. I think of these as excerpts or outtakes.

Here is an outtake from the Vulture needlework chart. I found the motif charming: it reminds me of feathers or leaves. (A friend remarked that it specifically reminded her of peacock feathers.)

This excerpt isn’t a coded word anymore.

2020: two knitting charts to celebrate the new year

Happy New Year! (A couple of days early, but I’ll be posting a Patreon word on Wednesday.)

I turn the digits of the year into a knitting chart each year. This is one of those times that the design is such that turning a given set of numbers into a chart produces a traditional design.

This year’s chart was easily converted into a mosaic knitting chart so you get both this time! (I don’t think the mosaic design is a traditional pattern, though it could easily be.)
