PART 2 - Second half of the centre circle


In the words of the designer:

Things You Need To Know:

Throughout this pattern I refer to ridges rather than rows. A ridge in garter stitch is two knit rows.

Where possible, all outside first stitches are slipped to help with the joining. I haven’t put this in the instructions so as to simplify them and it’s not disastrous if you forget.

• w&t (wrap and turn) is worked like this:

Bring the yarn forward, slip the next stitch purlwise, take the yarn back again, replace the slipped stitch on the left hand needle, bring the yarn forward again and turn the work.

*K2, w&t and knit back.

K4, w&t and knit back.

K6, w&t and knit back.

K8, w&t and knit back.

K6, w&t and knit back.

K4, w&t and knit back.

For the second half of the circle work five repeats from * and then knit 10 sts.

Now cast off 9 sts, leaving you with one stitch on your needle at the outside of the circle.

Ignore the fact that the circle is not yet closed, we’ll deal with that later.
