New Week::New Theme: Instructables in the Round

From the lady who “likes to make stuff”, “Danger is my middle name“, comes this very cool round knitted blanket. While the pattern came from knitlist via web.archive.org, DIMMN’s Instructables provides photos and how-to’s to go along with the pattern.

While it creates a spiral effect where the added stitches go, I love how the yarn she used also created rows of various shades of green.

About this blanket she states:

I love this blanket!  It is knit in the round using yarn overs to increase every other row which creates the spiral pattern.  I love knitting in the round because I don’t have to constantly switch my needle back and forth, especially on projects as big as this.  I always make these blankets for family friends with new babies since it’s so fun and unique but you can make them in any size.  It can be done in a solid color but I prefer yarn that makes stripes as you knit because it make a really interesting pattern that changes as your rows get bigger.  It’s also a great stash-busting project for a random striped blanket.
