I decided today to pick up the needles (sure fire sign that the winter blahs might be letting up a bit), and cast on a wee bit of a thing to use as a coaster. Possibly to plunk in etsy as a set of coasters, but I digress.
Alright.. spiral design.. I like spirals. I dont want huge chunks of plain.. no problem, I’ll add in some extra lines of holes. Piece of cake. Only a 4 needle set. Well.. I’ll cast on 9 instead of 8.
Well it’d break the line to decrease on the first increase of a new line. That’s okay. It’s just one extra stitch. No problem, it won’t make sooo much difference.
Well. If you can’t be a good example, at least you can be a horrible warning.
If you increase too fast, you do not get a circle. See? You get.. oh.. 130% of a circle. Which is not a flat coaster. Well. Damn.
