@potato2856 You could, but it won't end up looking exactly like the normal pattern. If you visualize the knot pattern of a Brickstitch Alpha vs. a Normal pattern, the Brickstitch Alpha knots are organized like the holes of a honeycomb, and the Normal pattern knots are organized like a diamond grid. I recommend plotting out a Normal pattern design in the BeadTool generator before making the pattern so you don't risk it looking bad.
for the pattern would you need to follow that certain brickstitch pattern or could you also use normal patterns grid patterns? they look similar to me but would it work? for the grid normal i mean the part that doesn't show the type of knots thats at the top of the (x) pattern
