The kitchener stitch, in knitting, is a way to graft two sets of live stitches together. I don’t knit very often any more, but I really like the name. And, this new tangle is based on the design that’s on my kitchen floor. So… kitchener, get it? Ha! I thought you would.
I took a long look at the tangles over at tanglepatterns.com, and could only find one, click clack, by Jane Monk, that has a similar mode of creation. I thought that kitchener was enough of a departure to be its own tangle. If I have inadvertently copied someone else’s tangle or tangle name too closely, please let me know. There are so many out there, it’s hard to keep track, even with the amazing library that is tanglepatterns.com.
There! Now everyone can recreate my kitchen floor whenever they like. Here are a couple of tangellation ideas.
In addition to kitchener, I also used phicops, sand swirl, flux with some tipple, flukes, and knase.
This tile is made with knase, knightsbridge, poke-leaf, quandary, and sláinte. Oh, and kitchener, of course.
If you use kitchener in a tile, I would love to see it. Put your link in a comment on this post.
