A knitting catalog arrived yesterday and I saw this for the first time.

It's intriguing, but I don't understand all the construction hype that goes with it. THREE circular needles, a set of dpns and a pair of straights? I played around this morning and figured out how to do it with a short circ (for provisional CO) and just one pair of straights (or one circ).

Anyone else seen this?

Is this the pattern by Pam Powers? That one (found on Ravelry, etsy, etc.) uses 1 circular needle. Looks interesting.

Yup that's the one. A YouTube video suggested the ton of needles. Wonder where they got that from?

I took a look at Ravelry projects. There were some notes saying that it was hard to keep the various strips from tangling at the beginning of the project - maybe that was the idea behind the multiple needles. To me, multiple needles would make it worse. Anyway, good luck!

What immediately came to my mind when I saw this is: Why not knit a very long, thin strip (changing the stitch pattern every third of the needed length) and then weave the strip into half of a loose Turk's knot?
