This pattern is a little more modern than some of my others. love is written in the pattern and there is also love hearts. I always found it interesting that traditionally a huge amount of love and care go into fair isle patterns and different families some times had different patterns.
Mason Marks pattern is based around the traditional marks left on building bricks. Traditionally every brick layer had their own mark so you could tell who built the building it sometime also tells you how old the building is.
This is my TAG design. For this design I took insperation form the graffiti done by vikings on the walls of tombs in Orkney. Quite often they would write there names like a tags. The design says TAG in stylised viking runes
