Technique Tuesday

Update: 01/24/2007: Added better-quality chart.

I realized I have a scanned graph of the color chart in my computer already! Since this is hand-done and a little sloppy, I'll probably replace this with a better-quality computer image later.

The Key (Part 1 of 2) is based on the ancient Greek Key motif. This chart is a rather literal interpretation of the key, Part 2 (to be published next week) will be a more figurative, abstract approach.

This pattern is worked in Fair Isle. I envision it as three different shades of grey on a white background, you're obviously free to knit it in whatever colors you like. It might be pretty using a long-repeat self-striping yarn (such as Noro Kureyon or Debbie Mumm Traditions) against a solid background.

If you rotate the chart 90 degrees it could be used as a mosaic knitting pattern.

I would love to see this Greek key mosaic worked up. I am looking for it in your site but I am not finding any examples yet. Could you point the way? I am thinking of using it in a cap but I am new to designing and not sure how it would look. I know trial and error are the knitter's stock and trade, alas.
