Inspired by Italy - Part 1

The architecture in Italy was amazing. I found myself drawn to some of the ancient and modern designs, and then realized that some of these would make fantastic knitting charts. In this post, I will show you three photos from my trip, followed by the charts they inspired.

This design was located at the top of a relief in the Roman Forum (in Rome).

Directly inspired by the previous photo. Size: 50 stitches x 9 rows

A single repeat of the chart. Size: 10 stitches x 9 rows

An iron fence on the side of a canal in Venice.

Size: 27 rows x 15 stitches

A random window that I saw through an iron gate. I may try to make a chart from the gate in the future.

I may try to make a smaller version in the future, but I was having fun sticking to a strict geometry. Size: 31x31

This is the same as the previous chart, but with a touch of color. It makes it more of a pinwheel. Size: 31x31
