Inspired by Italy - Part 2

The following was on the side of a church in Messina, Sicily. Time removed some of the color from the stars, leaving some beautiful variation in the design. At first I thought that the building was incredibly unique because of all of the different stars, but on another side of the building the stars were not worn in a symmetric pattern.


The tiles that are the inspiration for the 8 charts shared in this post.

Star Charts:
The following three charts are based loosely on the stars shown in the original image above. They are all 25x25 stitches.


Star A - 25x25 stitches



Star B - 25x25 stitches



Star C - 25x25 stitches


Divider Charts: This square and triangle tile design inspired the creation of five small charts.


The original tiles.


Divider A - 7x21 stitches (each repeat adds an additional 4 stitches)


Divider B - 5x21 stitches (each repeat adds an additional 4 stitches)


Divider C - 5x21 stitches (each repeat adds an additional 4 stitches)


Divider D - 7x23 stitches (each repeat adds an additional 6 stitches)


Divider E - 7x43 stitches (each repeat adds an additional 6 stitches)

I would like to eventually use these patterns to design some mitten patterns. I love the thought of making something that is 100% inspired by my trip to Italy. I will likely need to edit them back (removing circle borders and the like), but it should be a fun project. More charts are coming!

These patterns were created by ChemKnits for your Personal or charity use. The charts and directions of this pattern are not to be republished without permission of ChemKnits.
