A good detective knows how to keep a secret. Crack these codes, then write secret messages with your friends!
To crack this code, think about a traffic light. Green means go, red means stop. So stop and read each letter inside a red circle, going row by row to uncover the secret word.
Find the red X on each row. It will show you which cluster to read.
Red A: A, B, C, D, E
Red B: F, G, H, I, J
Red C: K, L, M, N, O
Red D: P, Q, R, S, T
Red E: U, V, W, X, Y/Z
Once you’ve identified the correct cluster, count across until you reach the pencil shade. For example, on the first row you’d use the third letter of the B cluster, which is H.
Read the decoded letters row by row to find the secret word.
Starting at the top, count the stitches until you reach the black stitch on each baseball. For example, the baseball below is 20.
Hint: Both arcs have 13 stitches, so if the black stitch is on the bottom half, count from the left and add 13.
Once you have all six numbers, replace the numbers with letters using basic substitution.
A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, D = 4, E = 5
F = 6, G = 7, H = 8, I = 9, J = 10
K = 11, L = 12, M = 13, N= 14, O = 15
P = 16, Q = 17, R = 18, S = 19, T = 20
U = 21, V = 22, W = 23, X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26
Read all six letters from left to right to crack the code!
To crack this code, only read the brown letters. Ignore the blue letters. Starting with the tallest fry, read the brown letters from highest to lowest.
