For instance, I've adorned this half circle with grilled delights...
And simple stripes...
Olives and pimentos...
As well as these crazy crustaceans...
Despite the examples above, I feel as if I've only begun my exploration about the realm of the half-round. Oh yes, more iterations definitely to come.
Love to see your take on this one too...
Come on, give it a try!
- 800 yards (give or take) of worsted weight yarn
- US size 8, 9 or 10 circular needle (40")
- BO - bind off
- CO - cast on
- K - knit
- KF&B - knit in front and back of stitch
- P - purl
- PF&B - purl in front and back of stitch
- PM - place marker
- st/sts - stitch/stitches
Shawl is worked from top down.
CO 8 sts.
R 1 - K 2, PM, K 2, PM, K 2, PM, K 2.
R 2 - PF&B of every st.
R 3 - K
R 4 - P
R 5 - KF&B first and last sts and before and after each marker. (two increases made per "section").
R 6 - P
R 7 - K
R 8 - P
Repeat rows 5 - 8 until desired length is achieved. (I usually work until I have at least 320 stitches on the needles.)
It just doesn't get much easier than that!
