Project info
Glöckchen by Herbert Niebling
25.5 inches (about 65 cm) in diameter
Needles & yarn
US 0 - 2.0 mm
American Thread Company Star Six Cord Crochet Cotton 30
Not actually Star, from a huge cone of size 30

From the 1939 Band 408.

Knitted from a cone of size 30 marked 3000 yards and $1.00.

Note to self: Remember to continue to knit the twisted stitches next to each flower twisted in the plain row.

I did not find any errors in this chart as I knitted.

Round 139 has a triple YO that is supposed to be knit off as 13 new stitches.

I knitted them as 4-5-4, that is:
but I have to say it was very tight.

At round 137 I had to knit it onto two 29” circular needles. The stitches were so crowded on one 29” circular, they kept trying to creep off the needle.

25 July 2011: All bound off, waiting for starching and blocking.

17 July 2011: The knitting is DONE! Now for the crochet-chain bindoff.
