[SOLVED] How to create such an icon

Hello, I have a question how to make an icon so that the letter used in it is cut so that the grid can be seen.
Here is the pattern

I've reread this a dozen times and I can't imagine what it means.  Can you elborate?  What's wrong with the image you posted?  Or is that what you want to make just with other letters?

My point is that like creating a new icon in inkscape and after making a circle with an ellipse, I would like to add a symbol or a letter in the middle. This is how to use the same effect as in the screenshot.

Convert both the circle and the letter to paths (Path -> Object to Path). Then select the circle first and letter second (hold Shift), finally use Path -> Difference to subtract the letter shape from the circle.

I wanted to show off my first icon made with inkscape.

Nicely done. Some kind of Fraktur-like typeface?

Re: [SOLVED] How to create such an icon

I am inspired by the nouveKDEGray icons theme, but sometimes it is difficult for me to get the same shade despite downloading a color picker.

EDIT.
And this icon made by me is simply a timeshift.
