It was time for a circular cloth knit in the round.
This is a great way to practice the Lighter Circular Beginning (second half of that video) Or if you don't like youtube here it is in still pictures: last entry here
This is also a great way to get your mind wrapped around a knit on border. It is easier to knit a knit on border than it is to figure out how to knit a knit on border. In other words once you have the start of it figured out the rest is a snap to knit.
For the doubling rounds I used the knit in the front and back of each stitch so I wouldn’t have the YO holes. The pattern on the main part of the cloth was not from a stitch dictionary. I drew it in Excel. The knit on border is from a stitch dictionary.
Unblocked (smoothed flat) it is about 10” in diameter.
Blocked it measures 10.5 inches.
The yarn is Pisgah Yarn & Dyeing Co., Inc America's Best Article 960, Perle Cotton (Size 5, mercerized). Color: Lime #56.
I used size 2 double pointed bamboo needles (8" long) for the whole thing.
The pattern is still in handwritten notes but I do have plans on writing it up with links and details for the tricky parts.
Ravelry link to project.
