... but, does Roundmaille usually develop a twist?
like this:

I haven't made much of it, the last being some years ago and I don't remember it having a natural twist!

That's odd. How did you make it? If you stitched it up, are you sure you didn't stitch it a row off? If you tried to continue it on the ends would you be able to add one unit or would it spiral around continuously? I can't think of how it would spiral naturally.

John Lennon once sang a song where he imagined a world with no religion at all, and how all the people would be living life in peace, which sounds like a pretty terrific philosophy to follow - but then again, John Lennon also sang a song about how he was an eggman and a walrus goo goo g'joob, so i'm not sure he was always 100 per cent reliable.

From what I understand, Roundmaille done properly shouldn't spiral like that.
Roundmaille done a row offset will do that.

Well that's what I thought but it was a standard piece of 5 row Euro 4in1 stitched up and it wasn't a row out (how could it be???). I don't know how this happened! I understand that I could have stitched it up offset but I was careful not to do that, could have happened though.
However I really like it, whats the betting if I try to do it again it won't twist? Razz

I think that must have been what happened. It all comes from trying to maille while taking care of a 4 year old and a 1 year old, you just can't have all your attention on the maille. But nevermind I think it's cool too!

Yup, that's exactly what it is. Roundmaille is a tube of E4, this is a tube of E4 on the bias.

Yes, I'm calling it a happy accident. BTW when it is twisted straight it looks triangular!

That is friggin' deluxe! A simple yet elegant variation. I think I'm going to make some.

It's the globe from the opening sequence of 'Mystery Science Theater 3000'. My favorite canceled television show featuring a man and two robots making fun of bad movies in space.

And I really wish they'd syndicate it. I'm sure I haven't seen all the episodes.

Due to expiring movie rights it's not likely to ever be syndicated again. However, there's a large and very active trading community if you know where to look. I can send you a few episodes if you like. My collection is nowhere near complete, but I'm always happy to share the joy.
