Please note following information for the Fluidity Pattern:
Instructions for Rounds 33-54 are repeated 4 times within each round.
Round 37 should have a stitch count of 192 sts.

The Newest Fluidity pattern has been rewritten for clarity. Charted and written instructions are free of errors, larger and much easier to follow. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. The featured blanket has been knit completely from the new pattern.

Fluidity© is a circular lace pattern, knit from the center, radiating outward and finishes square. Suitable as a blanket, shawl or table covering, the pattern is size adjustable and provides a seed stitch border option or can be finished on any round with the stretch bind off directions. Some knowledge of lace knitting and the use of DPNs is helpful but inexperienced to intermediate knitters will enjoy this pattern. .

As with most circularly knit projects, gauge is determined by the type and weight of yarn and size of needles to be used. This pattern radiates without major, forced blocking allowing for whatever fiber you wish to use.

This version of the Norwegian Fir Stitch pattern groups a combination of knit, purl, various increase and decrease stitches together for a pleasantly flowing union. As the project progresses, increases at each corner produce more Norwegian Fir stitch pattern repeats.
