Re: Making gridded patterns

I've done some searching for information on how to use snap-to-guides, but so far nothing is making sense. Most resources talk about what snap-to-guides is, how to make sure it's enabled, but not about how to use it, nor even the default spacing of the guides. In the mean time, I'm muddling along wi...

Re: Making gridded patterns

Hmmmm. . . I wonder whether it could be done with your method using "vertical thread", "horizontal thread", "no thread" "cut out", etc. as the "colors" for each grid square. . .

Re: Making gridded patterns

Thanks! I guess I'll have to spend some time playing with it. I figured that snap to grid/guide would have something to do with it, but I've been having a difficult time understanding how to make that work.

Re: Making gridded patterns

The grid lines don't actually have to be part of the motif. I can overlay the motif on a grid when I combine the motifs into a pattern. I guess, for starters, how do I draw those five lines that make up the kloster block and have them be parallel, straight, equal length, and evenly spaced? And how d...

Re: Making gridded patterns

Ok, I understand what you're saying. That will be useful after I get my images made. What I'm having trouble with is creating the images to start with (let's say, one of the groups of 5 stitches, called a "kloster block"): kloster block.jpg I could scan some of them from an existing pattern such as ...

Re: Making gridded patterns

I think I understand, but let me show you an example of what I'm talking about. Here is part of a pattern (it actually extends across to the next page, but I didn't scan that part). Notice that the threads are BETWEEN the grid lines (which represent the threads of the fabric itself). The dots at the...

Making gridded patterns

Tin, how do you make the grids for your cross-stitch pattern plugins? I would like to do something similar except for Hardanger and Lefkara lace making. There is only one thread color, but the stitch patterns are all different. Here are couple of Web sites to give you an idea of what they look like:...

Sadly, reddit's spam filter removed your original post, and a mod removed what I thing was your reply to a comment.

Mandala/Kaleidoscope script?

Is there a script somewhere to take a design that is 1/16 or 1/12 or 1/8 of a circle and repeat/flip it radially to make a mandala or snowflake effect? (I know about the script to create mandalas using a person's name, but I want to start with a design, perhaps imported from InkScape or another imag...
