This little picture cloth uses textured knit and purl stitches to create dimension. The little bumps have a technical name: nupps. In needle knitting, nupps have a scary reputation, but they are very easy to work on a knitting loom. The pattern is written step-by-step, line by line. A chart is included as well, if you want to use it, but it is not necessary to knit the cloth. Each line of the chart is two rows, working in both directions. The chart is color-coded instead using symbols, for easier reference. The e-book of patterns is available for pre-order June 1, 2019 and will be published July 1, 2019. Promotional 10% coupon from CinDwood Looms is included with pre-order as well as automatic entry for Loom prize drawing.
