# Lanterns: a charted design for any craft

When I was posting the *Happen* charted design, I realized that it reminded me of another, so I scrolled back and found the *Scribe* charted design. *Lanterns* is a mashup of the two, called that because the larger motifs remind me of lanterns or maybe lamps.

*Lanterns*has a repeat of 12 + 7 columns and 16 + 1 or 16 + 9 rows. (End after either round 17 or 25.)- 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!
