ausdemchaos replied to your post: YES BU T ITS BRIGHT BLUE AND I JUST WHATTY also do…

i have no idea what that is. is it math related. am i bothering you. sorry.

Ffft no you’re not bothering me.  Really with knitting everything is math-related.  There are probably knitting superstars who think they don’t have to do math because they’re so good at evaluating yarn/needle/stitch/body size that they just sort of do it in their heads, but the rest of us have to, like, deal with numbers.  Most knitting is in straight lines (or long spirals, if you’re doing a round object like a sweater or a sock or a hat), but when you have blocks of color that interrupt your knitting (like a design floating in the middle of a plain color), that needs a technique called intarsia, where you sort of attach the new color mid-row.  [I am shit at intarsia so I probably explained it poorly.]  For something that’s allover little blocks of different colors, it’s possible they started with one block, then attached the yarn for the new block to the side and knit from there, then did that with each successive block.  I’ve heard that one called modular knitting.  Never tried it tho.
