Modular Pictures

The idea of making a modular picture always fascinates me. Does it really work?

My first attempt was the tree picture. It’s partially modular and you can read more about it here (scroll down): http://www.pictureknitting.com/gator_lake.html

It’s hard to see but the right part of the soil is knitted upward while the trees etc are knitted sideways, with the idea of taking advantage of variegating yarns in different directions. By the time I started knitting I forgot it and just picked the yarn I fancied…      It’s modular in knitting 2 directions in the same piece, but does not have inc/dec(so it’s not a real module).

This is my second modular attempt. I used a small chart I had for a picture knitting class and lots of little left over yarns (I belong to the group that can not throw even itsy bitsy piece of yarn). Still needs work, but it was so much fun to knit and totally impossible to tell what’s going on until the very end.
