1  Ohio / Ohio: Central / Attn: Columbus Knitters on: June 21, 2007 11:27:01 AM
I'm trying to put together a new social knitting club in Columbus. After Knitters Connection it seemed apparent that a niche amongst our local knitters needed to be filled!

We're looking to put a group of knitters together who are interested in going out for drinks and knitting.

If you are interested, I've started a community on Ning.com. (Ning also incorporates flickr photos!)

Please shoot me your email and I'll send you an invite. Right now we are in planning stages so we need your input!

We'd love to have you if you are interested in learning to knit also!

Crocheters/spinners/needlecrafters/lovers of knitters all welcome!

*Textile Design Repeat Tutorial*

Although I'm sure that there are other ways of doing this, and that there are more styles of repeats, here are 3 that are easy and interesting!

To do any of these take a sheet of paper and fold it in half and then in half again. Open your paper up, there should be 4 sections. You should number each section 1-4. To get a repeat you are going to draw designs across the entire sheet and re-arrange the boxes so that you can have the design repeat. I like to start by making my first design in the intersection of the 4 boxes before I cut them apart because it is easier to draw before you have to separate the them.

Start by putting your first design in the middle, then other ones across each box intersection. It gets easier once you've done it a couple of times, and you get a better idea of where things are going to move around.
Then cut the pieces apart and re-arrange them into the 2nd and 3rd positions according to your chosen repeat style. Continue to draw your designs, taking careful notice to line up your previous designs. You'll know that you are done when you can move the pieces into the 3 positions and everything magically lines up and repeats.

This is the easiest to begin with as you understand the shifting easier.

This will produce a design that repeats your design like a brick wall.

Half Drop:
This is the hardest to plan out, but produces the most interesting design.

When your design can fully repeat you are ready to put it back together, tape it back up. Then you should make 4 photo copies of it. Tape the 4 copies together so that they repeat. There should be parts that are bisected. You should cut out around those parts and attatch them so that all the images are full and none are cut in half.
Now your design is ready to be inked and then burnt into your screens!

I know that this will probably sound vague, so let me know where I can clarify myself more. This is also my first tutorial, so it is probably pretty poorly done! good luck though!
