Solitude: a free chart for any craft
Each month I encode a word suggested by my Patreon backers. I make one complex knitting stitch from that code, usually lace, but sometimes a fancy cable pattern. I also pick one of the code charts that I think would work well for many kinds of crafts: needlepoint, tiles, beadwork, cross stitch, crochet, and even knitting. (For knitting, some of these charts will work for colorwork, or can be turned into knit/purl designs and so on.)
I sometimes use filters on the charts to try to give a sense of how the design might look when used. It’s not exact, but it helps me. This image is rotated from the original below.
The chart in the rotated version is not suited for knitted colorwork, which works best with shorter stretches of stitches. The original below should work, however.
Designers, please feel free to use these stitches in your patterns. I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it. – Naomi
