Index to rest of patterns, plus more about the original pattern book.

To print a pattern (on Windows), position the mouse on it and click the right button, then click on Save Picture or Print Picture.

The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). The second picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish. The third picture shows how you can make the pattern two dimensional (I've added a little here). The fourth picture shows a possible way to go round corners (smaller format, with squares).

The original patterns were in black and white, so I have chosen the colours. You can vary them if you want. The yellow squares may be a different type of stitch, as the 4 stitches are drawn as a diagonal cross. It seemed easier to make these a different colour instead. Feel free to chose colours you want or colour it a different way.
