iamshadow: Picture of knitting needles with the caption Knitting Yet another socially acceptable way to stim (Autknit)

Just wanted to post a brag picture of my in-progress Double Vision.


As you can probably see, all I’ve retained is the colour blends. The technique is completely different. Each square is knitted from the outside in, and joined by picking up and knitting stitches of previously completed squares during the cast on. I admit that I’m using this technique because I HATE making up, and the idea of sewing up at the end of knitting made me shudder. This way, all I have to do is weave in the ends.

The yarn is Moda Vera Wisp, a synthetic polar fleece style yarn with a sparkle. I chose this yarn because I liked it, and because I simply couldn’t find the purple used in the top left corner in any other Australian yarn and still have a full spectrum. It seemed to be one or the other!

Each square is sixteen stitches per side, knitted on five 5mm DPNs or a circular needle (magic loop). This way, all of my squares are indeed squares, without the need for worrying about gauge or measuring. I’ll finish the outside edge with a crochet border in black when I’m done, just to neaten it and disguise any unevenness.

How fascinating! Is there any chance you could post pictures of a square in progress, as I would love to see how you join them up.

Aha! Useful tips and techniques! I've seen that on the Woolly Thoughts group on Ravelry and have a wistful urge to make one, but I'll never be able to afford all the yarn for it. Alas. (The Biggan First Cross Merino is what I'd *choose* to make it in, if I *could* afford to!)

It looks lovely!
