What is 'Petranese'?
Writing Image Overlay Crochet (IOC) patterns can get pretty wordy pretty quickly.
“Petranese” is a way of easily describing the nature and placement of a stitch in an IOC pattern.
Since June 2021 with the introduction of collaborators and contributors to the Wrapped in Jamie CAL and for the purpose of using a more ‘official’ language, we have started to refer to this specific terminology as Image Overlay Crochet (IOC) ‘Petranese’ terminology.
Below you find a collection of tutorials that explain the basics and some more advanced techniques and special stitches in IOC.
