Blackwork Pattern Book: Ensamplario Atlantio

 String or Nothing has posted a brand new free blackwork pattern book, Ensamplario Atlantio! It’s pretty cool – there are over 200 patterns in there. The patterns range from simple geometric repeats to stag heads and griffins. Anyway, if you have any interest in blackwork, it’s a fantastic resource. The bottom two patterns in the photo of her sampler below are included in the book.

My favorite pattern, though, did not make it into the book – check out Dancing Pirate Octopodes!!!!

    I agree – they’re great fun. I’m beginning to wonder whether I can take the idea and develop a different set of motifs….

      I’ll be posting about a different source of blackwork motifs Friday – from India 🙂

      Oooh! Good Idea!
      After vacation week I’ll put out a crowd-source call for additional motifs for Dancing Pirate Octopodes and post the ones submitted on String. This will be fun!

        oh man, you have no idea how much it pleases me to see the word “Octopodes.” After hearing about it for the first time here :

        I’ve been trying to fit it into every conversation! I prefer to pronounce differently from the video, opting for the more childish (read fun) sounding: “Octo-podies.” Is that a Flying Spaghetti Monster I see?!

    Yup. In all his noodly glory: Rendered in a particularly silly moment.

    Younger Daughter doesn’t have a British accent, but she can spout off the puses-pi-podes case ast the drop of a cephalopod.
    Enjoy, -k.
