# Pizazz: a charted design for any craft

The random number generator picked *pizazz* from the suggestions for this post, suggested by Kate, one of my Patreon supporters. I’m fond of the way this needlework chart reminds me of sunfish swimming back and forth. I don’t know whether they can be said to have pizazz, but I do like them.

I developed a lace stitch pattern for *pizazz*, but I also like to provide a basic chart for any craft that’s worked on a grid: beads, cross stitch, whatever. I 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 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.)

*Pizazz*has a repeat of 7 columns and 24 + 12 rows. (End after either row 12 or 24.)- In the written instructions, color A is the light squares above, and color B is the dark.
- The written instructions below are formatted for stranded knitting, but it is my hope that they could be translated into instructions for other crafts. For instance, if working filet crochet, 1A could be one open square and 2B could be two filled-in squares.
- Designers, please feel free to use this in your patterns (no need to ask). I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
- My blog posts and stitch patterns are supported by subscriptions on Patreon or donations to my Paypal tip jar in the sidebar. If you appreciate my work, please consider helping out. Thanks!
