Around the Bend
Around the Bend is a elongated triangle with a simple texture suited to dramatic yarn combinations. It was inspired by the chevron signposts marking the approaching bend on many a windy road.
Designed with travel knitting in mind, it uses a short formula which is easy to memorise so you can knit on the bus, the train, or while chatting at knit night.
Play with pairing a solid yarn with a variegated, or two contrasting colours, or knitting a gradient yarn from both ends.
Knitting By The Seat Of Your Pants 2 is a collection of 5 mostly garter projects in a variety of shapes, focussing on simple yet interesting 4 row construction, which is easily memorised so you don’t need to carry the pattern around with you all the time.
Each of these patterns can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from the chart with notes.
Gauge is not critical with this project. This page lists 6mm needles, which is what the sample used, but please adjust your needle size to suit your own yarn. This design is suited to a range of weights from fingering to worsted, and adaptable to any yardage.
The sideways construction of this design makes the sizing very adaptable. Start at one corner and knit until you reach the turning point of your yarn..
