I'm knitting this pattern, and I was wondering if it would work if I used Fair Isle instead of the duplicate stitch technique, because I don't have a tapestry needle. Reply quickly, because I'm knitting them for my cousin for when she graduates to high school.
You could, but they probably embroidered because the back looks better. If you strand it or do intarsia on it, the back will look a bit messy with the letters backwards.
Maybe you can make 2 and sew them together?
I'm thinking of double-knitting. Does that sound okay?
Your letters will still be backwards on the back, though.
Oh, darn. I'll just make 2 and sew them together, then, I guess.
