Laying out secret code numbers on a rectangular grid: method 4

This is the next part of my rewrite of my instructions for turning words into knitting charts (or charts for other crafts). Once the letters have been turned into numbers, they need to be charted on a grid. I already posted three ways of making…

I did something similar on buttonwillow. It is a nice fancy edging.

The word of the month is brouhaha, suggested by Hazel 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.

A few months ago I proposed a rewrite of my secret code pages because they’re a little disorganized and confusing for many people. It doesn’t help that I tacked on some extra content in places that it didn’t really fit. Anyway, I think it needs doing. I’m…

Figuring the percentage of a circle that's been knit. #tbt

About six years ago, I posted about how to calculate the percentage of a circle that’s been knit, based on how many rounds have been worked. I’ve updated the post a little bit while I was at it. Shorter version: starting from the center of a circle, a…

One of the  common forms of knitted crescent shawls involves casting on a few stitches in the center top of the shawl, and then knitting back and forth while increasing three stitches on each side over every two rows. The selvedges I’ve seen most…

When I was playing around with Apple Blossom and Scarab, this design came to mind as a possibility, and indeed it works. It’s a chevron pattern taken to the smallest extreme I can think of, though the chevron part isn’t terribly visible. The Doubles…

Brouhaha: a free lace knitting stitch pattern, thanks to my Patreon backers.

July’s stitch pattern word is brouhaha, suggested by Hazel on Patreon. I like the way the word sounds, sort of round and unusual. (It was suggested at the beginning of June. Any similarity to current events is purely coincidental!) Each month, my Patreon…

Introduction
I don't necessarily add people back automatically; I'm more likely to add you if I know you from elsewhere. 

To new folks finding me: I don't just post about handcrafts, but also link to news and political posts I find interesting as well as sciencey stuff and things that amuse me. I am a progressive, liberal Democrat and post accordingly. Nor do I segregate my politics by only posting it for a single circle. (What I do limit tends to be more personal events or private thinking.) 

(Not listing my current town on my profile.)
