an idea for a circular afghan
I was playing with the circle rug pattern for a tree skirt (I'll post when done) and I remembered an old blanket my brother had as a kid that was circular. So here is my first try in the purple. I didn't like how the ridges looked. I am playing with washcloth size so I can see the look. What I am looking to do is make the "spokes" black and the pies wedges bright primary colors. That is if I can find a good yarn in all the colors I want. The second try (the cream one)I did a stockinette stitch and garter stitch border and for the center I picked up stitches and mixed rows of knit and K2 tog. Let me know what you think.
