Rain: a free chart for any craft worked on a grid
Each month, my backers on Patreon suggest words to me that I might encode into numbers and chart on a grid. I make one complicated stitch pattern for each word and one chart that can be used for any craft. This month, the RNG brings us rain, sent in by Meagan. Would you like to support me and propose words?
This is a different chart from the one I used for the knitting stitch. It’s rain encoded as numbers in base 8 and then charted and mirrored in two directions. It could be used as a quilt layout, as stranded knitting, as jacquard knitting, as cross stitch – anything really. I liked the way it made a star.
Designers, please feel free to use this stitch in your patterns. I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it. Thanks! – Naomi Parkhurst
