Fuschia Cloth for the Loom
This little picture cloth uses textured knit and purl stitches to create dimension. The little bumps have a technical name: nupps. In needle knitting, nupps have a scary reputation, but they are very easy to work on a knitting loom. The pattern is written step-by-step, line by line. A chart is included as well, if you want to use it, but it is not necessary to knit the cloth. Each line of the chart is two rows, working in both directions. The chart is color-coded instead of using symbols, for easier reference.

My patterns are low vision accessible. The text is black, Arial and large print 24 point font. All of the directions are fully written out and no charts are relied on to complete the patterns. No italics are used. They are screen reader and tablet friendly.
