    I find this interesting...Intermeshing

    it gives a really interesting look, and i think you can create different patterns within the mesh depending on how you arrange the colors. as I recall, Margaret Hubert has a section on it in Complete Photo Guide, and i think I've seen it in other stitch dictionaries. haven't done it myself and right now at least it would be above my concentration level the closest I've come to the intermesh technique was a trivet in reversible shells stitch pattern https://books.google.com/books?id=sAwNBAAAQBAJ&pg=PA166&lpg=PA166&dq=hubert+crochet+reversible+shells+-pinterest&source=bl&ots=FM5kKy3TUY&sig=tspIvFihsReBagZaILT-cqR8XEc&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj1o9Gzza7dAhXp34MKHUjfBVIQ6AEwC3oECAIQAQ#v=onepage&q=hubert crochet reversible shells -pinterest&f=false I know it looked good but I don't remember much about the process of making it.

    Prismatic Stitch

    welcome to the ville! I don't know what Curtzy is, but I think it sounds like this has been translated from another language in to English. "hook 5 turns" for example is very oddly worded. Taking a stab at what Prismatic could be, I wonder if it is a very bad description of a post stitch.

    Color bleed issue

    If you do try it, let us know if it helps I can't think of anything else to suggest, but maybe others can.

    maybe try washing it again with Shout Color Catcher? http://www.shoutitout.com/en-US/Products/Pages/shout-color-catcher.aspx never used it myself , just suggesting it may be worth a try. and welcome to the ville!

    Reading pattern help please!!!

    Hi, welcome to the Ville! Read it the first way. It's important to know that the [38] is telling you the stitch count for the row.

    What stitch to use to sew this tablet stand?

    I agree with what Granny Square said

    What stitch to use to sew this tablet stand?

    For the bottom seam I think crocheting would be good, you can make it as tight as the rest of the fabric. Just sc the edges together.
