Mastery in Servitude #3, Through the eye of time.

A knitted rendering for Meher Baba’s symbol of Mastery in Servitude.

This is the 3rd time I knit it as a big wall hanging (approx 33×33″).

It’s done in quilting technique, to give the feeling of something old & patched, and is almost finished.

The original one hasĀ  ‘Mastery in Servitude’ written in the middle.

This was the 2nd knit:

 

The first:

And all together:

All of Me, box

‘All of Me’ is a series of knits with symbolize images of my life with Meher Baba:

His Samadi & its Threshold, the ‘Mastery in Servitude’ symbol, and his hand writing for the word ‘I’.

The box was the first thing I did. The idea came from a box I got from Dolly Dastur in India – she called it a ‘Don’t Worry’ box.

Knit wise: double knit in one piece with little assembly.

All of Me, Hats

After adding the scarves of this series on (previous entry), I realized the hats & boxes were not up yet.

There are 2 styles for the hat. The easy one is knit upward, with carried rib to give elasticity:

The other style is more complicated:

The top is knit first, then add sts and knit the other 4 symbols downward.

Both hats can be done in double knit, this one is cotton:
