Knitting yet another plank

White planks were knitted in recycled polyester tablecloths, discarded by a catering firm. As the polyester did not dye well, old cotton sheets and duvets were dyed for the blue planks. The fabric was torn into 2 cm strips and knitted in stocking stitch on 2.5cm wooden needles. Smaller pieces for the tiller were made using thinner strips and needles.
