The Wallpaper Had It Coming Again Chart

Similar to my previous simplified chart for the wallpaper seen in the BBC series Sherlock, but with more detail, stitches, and rows. Again, it is just a chart for you to adapt to whatever project you like--there are no instructions for a specific project.

This image has many repeats of the chart, and you can save it to your computer and edit it to suit the size/dimensions of your project. When viewed on the computer you should be able to zoom in without the lines becoming blurry.

This image is a 24 stitch by 62 row tile, if you prefer to work with that.

You could also crop your own 24 x 62 tile from the larger image, starting at a different location in the overall design, if it suits your project better.

For visual balance when knitting a flat piece, I recommend that you cast on a multiple of 24 stitches + 1 (for example, 49, 73, 97) rather than a multiple of 24.

I haven’t printed either chart, so if there are any issues, please let me know, and I will try to fix them.

I hope you enjoy knitting and perhaps painting smiley faces and shooting holes in this!

Here is my swatch, which turned out to be the right size for a Kindle cozy:

I haven't done anything else with this chart, but check out other people's projects on Ravelry for more ideas!
