Blossom: a free needlework chart for any craft

This month, the random number generator chose blossom, suggested by Rebecca & Amy on Patreon.

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 an image of the pattern repeated all over not as a chart. I use a bunch of filters and things to try to make it look interesting while retaining the encoded layout. It doesn’t necessarily look like a finished object for any particular craft, but I just want to give a sense of it.

This particular design would do well as a knit/purl design if rotated by a quarter turn. It also makes me think of patchwork quilts.
