The world at your fingertips!

My friend made a joke about how she wished she could hold the world in her hand. What she didn’t know was that I was thinking about how I could make it happen, in a knitted way of course.

I didn’t search for a knitting pattern for it that thoroughly because I wanted to design it myself. I got some inspiration from a book of Christmas baubles and I came up with my own pattern for a sphere world using 5 double pointed needles.

This is the original chart that I used for the first little knitted world ;

Here are some photos of it in progress !

Once I had finished it I was so pleased with myself for having designed it all on my own! Ā I made two, one for my friend and one for my boyfriend. The first one that I made was slightly smaller than the second one, as you can see below ;

Also the first one (on the right side) had way too small ice caps. I imagine the world will look like this in the future after the ice caps have melted for a few more years!

I am super pleased with my little knitted world and I hope to come up with a pattern soon that I will list on Ravelry!

Here are some more pics of the second world that I made. It’s prettier with a nicer colour of blue for the sea šŸ™‚
