## Transform hexagonal to raster - a wife's question

 My wife showed me a beading pattern that she was working on that looks to my eye like a hexagonal grid, its called a peyote stitch, and she needs to transform it to a loom stitch, essentially a raster. In the beading world they suggest combining two rows into one. If asked, what have you tried, I would say I tried to duck, but... In practical application, the two rows equals one doesn't appear to preserve the desired pattern when beading the loom, probably something like netting out the half-steps when you're going from two rows to one = n+1 or n +2 for bead count on the combined row. 40x40 hex grid, OK, I'll get out my graph paper. Summer. Thank you for your forbearance, and any very general thoughts appreciated, ie transforms sans datums & etc. Chris         [[alternative HTML version deleted]] _______________________________________________ R-sig-Geo mailing list [hidden email] https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-geo

 If I were in your shoes I would be doing a hop-skip to ring Sarah Goslee's doorbell.  She's our resident ecology-spatial-textiles guru... http://www.stringpage.com/  > On Jul 29, 2018, at 12:26 AM, chris english <[hidden email]> wrote: > > My wife showed me a beading pattern that she was working on that looks to > my eye like a hexagonal grid, its called a peyote stitch, and she needs to > transform it to a loom stitch, essentially a raster.

 Thank you Ben!, I'll actually send her directly to Sarah, http://www.sarahgoslee.com/ . Dr. Massa, meet Dr. Goslee, Professor of indeterminate studies & weaver, and writer, Dr. Goslee, meet Dr. Massa, cognitive neuro research scientist, felter and loom beader.
