Writing Image Overlay Crochet (IOC) patterns can get pretty messy 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.
