The pattern calls for duplicate stitch but I switched to stranded after the first one.  I’m knitting multiple at a time. I have found I can knit 4 dumpsters without tangling issues (probably could do more if I attempted to manage my skeins better). I have also found I can knit 7 flames without having issues with tangling.

5/3 – I now have 10 dumpsters knitted…now for more flames!

5/18 – I Now have 10 finished dumpsters! Now for more!

8/17/21 Completed 20 Dumpsters!
