How To Create Custom Stitch Patterns – Part 2

Yesterday, in Part 1 of this tutorial on How to Create Custom Stitch Patterns, I shared with you how to create your own custom design patterns.  Today, I am going to show you how to expand upon the skills we learned in Part 1.

All of the custom patterns in today’s lesson are all derived from the very same original base 3 stitch pattern we used in Part 1.

Here are a few more:

Now we can begin to further modify these new custom stitch patterns by adding more detail.  For example:

And we can take these new stitch patterns and apply the lessons we learned in Part 1 to make even larger, more complicated stitch patterns.  For example, using the second design pattern above we can create the following:

Here are a few other inspirational custom stitch patterns to get your creative juices flowing.  Remember, these were all created using the simple 3 stitch base pattern we started with in Part 1.  The possibilities are truly endless.

How To Create Custom Stitch Patterns – Part 1

For those of you who have always wanted to learn how to create your own custom stitch pattern designs, but never knew where to start, this short tutorial will help get you started on custom designing your own patterns.

Start with a small basic pattern, shape or design

Designing custom stitch patterns starts with taking a very simple stitch pattern and creating it into a new and different custom design or pattern.

In my example, I am using a base three stitch pattern.
