# Hyla, version 1: a charted design for any craft

It’s going to take a bit longer to finish the first 1/1 cable stitch method tutorial than I expected, so I’m going to post some simpler things in the meantime. Here’s a charted design I made from scratch. Since it’s not an encoded word, I had to come up with a name, so I’m using a name from my family tree.

I’m going to post several variations over several weeks; I liked them all and I think they’ll combine well, too.

• Hyla, version 1, has a repeat of 14 + 1 columns and 12 + 1 rows.
• 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.
• This pattern is written in rounds, but because each row has mirror symmetry, the colors can be read in flat rows as written. If knitting, just work purl stitches on alternating rows instead of knit.
• 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!

Round 2: work knit as follows; 1A, *1A, 1B, 2A, 1B, 3A, (1B, 2A) × 2; work from *.

Round 3: work knit as follows; 1A, *1B, 2A, 1B, 5A, 1B, 2A, 1B, 1A; work from *.

Round 4: work knit as follows; 1A, *(2A, 1B) × 2, 1A, 1B, 2A, 1B, 3A; work from *.

Round 5: work knit as follows; 1A, *1A, 1B, 2A, 1B, 3A, (1B, 2A) × 2; work from *.

Round 6: work knit as follows; 1A, *(1A, 1B) × 2, (2A, 1B) × 2, 1A, 1B, 2A; work from *.

Round 7: work knit as follows; 1A, *1A, 1B, 2A, 1B, 3A, (1B, 2A) × 2; work from *.
