Note on knitting multicolored Möbius strips

Nothing too complicated will work right, as intarsia and other such techniques will result in much ugliness (because they assume the thing being knitted is orientable).

If you want big rectangular blocks of color, your basic problem will be getting the yarn of the desired color to the desired corner of the rectangle at the beginning of a row -- it will be in the exact opposite corner from where you want it to be.

Disappointingly, your best choice is probably to knit the rectangles separately and then sew everything together.
