The rogue trader shop my husband plays warhammer and infinity at had an art show last month. This was my contribution. I got 'Fan Favorite'!





EDIT: I used 2 strands simply soft black, size 10 needles, and an entire 32 oz bag of polyfil.

Start with 35 sts, then k2tog on one edge and ssk on the other on the knit side. I used a provisional cast on to make the triangles easier to knit together.

The hardest part was the graphs for the numbers (and the paint file I had them in has gone missing), which I used duplicate stitch to add afterward in aunt lydia's gold crochet thread, 4 strands held together. Most of the numbers were 13 pixels high and 7 wide, except "4" which was 9 wide and "1" which was only 5 wide.

After that, grab a real d20 to get the facings right and have at it!

"Probably not balanced."  Just put a small bag of poly pellets conveniently directly opposite the 20 so it can be "deifnitely not balanced."  That'd be awesome.
This is epic.  I want one.  Smiley

More "probably not balanced" in that there's nothing in there to stiffen the sides (I may have tried plastic canvas if I'd had more time). When you 'roll' it, it's just as likely to land on an 'edge' as it is one of the numbers. The guy who bought it was playing Pathfinder at the time of the show and the DM let him use it on one roll. It edged between 6 and 9.

That is so awesome!! I showed it to my hubby (also a nerd/gamer), and he agrees that it's super fantastic. I'd love to attempt this, but I haven't mastered knitting yet. Great job!

Impressive! I'd vote it fan favorite too. I bet you could take out an average DM with it too...  *wink wink* the epic hugeness of it adds to its +5 might.

So cool!  Cheesy My gamer husband would flip over this! I don't knit well enough to stitch the numbers into the triangles, so I'd have to settle for applique'd felt numbers. This will be added to my evergrowing "to do" list! Thank you for sharing!

Any chance you've been able to find or remake your number graphs?  I started making a d20 in hot pink for my gamer female friend for Christmas.  I'm in the process of making graphs myself but I don't like how they look.
