Yay, I can knit again! Although I need to take it slower, or the pain comes back. Apparently I now have tendonitis, whatever that is...
Anyway, here it is, a new pattern from the sew-funky brain!
CAST OFF TWIRL
Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 4.5 mm needles. I used I used Anchor Magiclene for this cloth, which gave it a lovely effect. I also made it up by using the various cotton oddments that I have in my stash. It's a great way to use them all up!
Cast on 15 stitches.
This cloth is made up of 10 wedges, all exactly the same. When you finish knitting a wedge, you just carry on knitting the next one. Then the edge is sewn together, the threads are sewn in and the cloth is complete. :)
Row 1 & all odd rows: K.
Row 2: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 4: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.
Row 6: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last 3 sts, turn.
Row 8: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last 4 sts, turn.
Row 10: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last 5 sts, turn.
Row 12: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K to last 6 sts, turn.
Row 14: Cast off 6 sts, K to end of row.
Repeat this wedge 9 more times, and then join the seams. :)
