Knitting,  Needlework

Knitting in code

I just finished knitting this lovely lady as a gift for someone special.

I’m experimenting and playing with the idea of including a message within the stitchwork itself.

This heart has one word stitched into the gray section: look for the odd stitches. I used Madame Defarge’s cipher; each letter of the alphabet is represented by certain combinations of stitches.

Here’s the link to more info & to the cipher: https://blog.uwgb.edu/…/knitting-code-a-tale-of-two-very-d…/
