An interesting one from Mr.Föhl here. Lovely at 2X as well!

Like the name says, light and gray. And it has some small dots and circles.

Awesome name, great pattern. Who does not love space?

Very, very subtle. If your screen is too dark you might miss it. Tweak at will!

My favourite, fresh snow! There’s nothing like going down the hill on fresh powder.

Not the most subtle, but very useful. And native retina!
A bit of a snow special for you today. Winter is coming, after all!

Add some sprinkles to your site, eh?

This one is something special. I’d call it a flat pattern, too. Very well done, sir!

Tiny little flowers growing on your screen. Nice, huh?

This one is super crisp at 2X. Lined paper with some dust and scratches.

This one is rather fun and playful. The 2X could be used at 1X too!

Don’t look at this one too long if you’re high on something.

This shit has to Z’s in it. Must be hot!

Dare I call this a «flat pattern»? Probably not.
Made by Dax Kieran.
Clean and crisp lines all over the place. Wrap it up with this one.
Did anyone say The Hoff? This pattern is in no way related to Baywatch.

Tweed is back in style – you heard it here first. Also, the @2X version here is great!
Made by Simon Leo.
You know I like walls, what can I say. This one needs to be used in small areas, though. You can see it repeat.
Made by Luca.
One more brick pattern. A bit more depth to this one.
