I’ve often thought how similar knitting instructions and computer code are. They’re both just a set of instructions afterall.

I’ve taken a fairly mathematical pattern idea, repeated it horizontally and then reflected it back on itself. The pattern includes written instructions, and when it came to drawing up the chart, I saw my opportunity to code a Python programme to generate the chart. The result is quite retro, but I think it does the job. I have included the Python code, perhaps you could work out the instructions just from the code?

A caveat: I don’t offer technical support for the code, it’s just for interest’s sake only.
