knitted houseI was playing around with knitting some house-shaped coasters/ornaments the other evening, but I realised they would involve cutting and rejoining the yarn quite a few times. I was feeling lazy and I began to wonder whether I could knit them in one piece, so I would only have to weave in two ends. It turned out to be a bit more complicated than I could work out at the time, but I have been thinking about it ever since as a sort of challenge. It reminds me a bit of the trick of drawing the envelope without taking the pen off the paper. Here is the shape I was trying to achieve. I used garter stitch, but you don’t have to. The only stipulation is that you don’t cut and rejoin the yarn, dimensions are entirely up to you. Can you do it?

Post a comment here or on the Ravelry forums if you find a solution; all the better if you knit it up and take a photo. I will post my solution next Sunday. Have fun!
