Since I live in Silicon Valley, why not design with Binary Stitches©. What are Binary Stitches©? Knit and purl stitches defined as bit or bytes offer a multitude of ‘new’ knitting stitches, which I refer to as Binary Stitches©.
Each week on my blog I’ll introduce a new pattern swatch. So, here is the first example of many more yet to be discovered.
The above-pictured swatch has not been blocked because I did not want to flatten the texture of the surface.
Binary Stitch Pattern #1©
The swatch is knit with a smooth worsted-weight yarn using US Size 7 needles. Knit the stitch pattern at least three times through to fully enjoy the stitch pattern.
