Note: Read ALL these instructions thoroughly BEFORE starting to knit. The pattern may call for more needles than you have on your machine.
NOTE: At most, 96 needles are required to knit this garment.
1. Sideways Circular Shawls are worked using short row shaping. Use claw weights to maintain tension on the shaped section. The instructions below are fairly brief and are of the form: [short row n1 sts every other row x1 times]. This means:
1A. With COL place RH ndls into HP.
1B. *Next row: return n1 needles to FWP (latches open), work 1 row, wrap the next ndl, work 1 row, returning to COL.
1C. Repeat from * x1 times.
1. Cast on 96 sts in WY, using KP4 and open edge method. Work 6 rows WY. COR. Change to MY. Reset RC000. Start work in Stocking Stitch.
2. First wedge. Work 1 row even across all sts. Put all ndls into HP. Short row 4 sts every other row 21 times, then 3 sts every other row 3 times. Total 49 rows. Bring rem ndls to FWP (latches open). Work 1 row even across all sts (optionally slip centre st to keep centre hole small).
3. Repeat first wedge 15 more times. (Each wedge is 50 rows, total for all wedges is 800 rows).
4. Change to WY. Work 6 rows. Remove sts from machine.
5. I converted the long edge to 1x1 rib.
1. Graft the blanket together along the inside seam.
2. Darn/weave/sew in all loose ends.
3. BLOCK. Really, it makes all the difference.
