So, I thought I would try to convert this common dishcloth pattern to a machine knit one!
And it worked!
Now usually this is knit in all garter stitch but that is not so easily achieved on a knitting machine.
I hand manipulated the 3 stitches on the edges so it wouldn't curl--
it was fun to grab a few minutes to knit a wedge!!!!
The work took place over a small number of needles-17-20 throughout the knit
since you work on only half of the diameter at a time.
I did have to work out how many rows per wedge (8)
would equal what percentage of 360 degrees so I would knot how many wedges!
It works out each wedge was about 25.7 degrees
so 14 of them were needed to make a circle!
I kept bringing the finished wedges up to see where I was for closing in on the complete circle!
All in all, a good exercise in a 'what if' train of thought.....!
