This heptagon/circle blanket/shawl is a spunky knit with it’s bright colors (in worsted-weight cotton) and solid stitch-patterning. The finished size of this heptagon is approx 66 inches across and is a joy to knit. Worked in the round and starting at the center, you create a spiral-petaled focal-point. Switching to #10s and spoke increases, you begin to work shades of pink in the petals. I have added a few rounds of striping between the color changes to avoid harshness and blend the colors better. The final rounds are lime green leaves with a touch of the bright prink at the very edge. The sample used KP’s Shine Worsted in: 1 skein of Cream, 2 skeins of Blush, 3 skeins Cosmopolitan, and 3 skeins of Citrine; this design would also be gorgeous in a solid color (needing approx 625 yds of worsted-weight cotton)
Directions are both round-by-round and charted
