View Full Version : Changing a pattern knitted flat to one that's in the round

12-30-2011, 02:00 PM
Any ideas how to convert this flat pattern to one that can be worked in the round? I've tried numerous times (both charting it and writing it out) and failed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Waterfall Pattern

Row 1: P3, *k3, yo, p3: rep from * to end.
Row 2: K3, *p4, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 3: P3, *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 4: K3, *p2, p2tog, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 5: P3, *k1, yo, k2tog, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 6: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end.
Repeat these 6 rows for pattern.

I think it's going to go like this:
Row 1 P3 *k3, yo p3*
Row 2 P3 *k4, p3*
Row 3 P3 *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, p3*
Row 4 P3 *k2tog, k2, p3*
Row 5 P3 *k1, yo, k2tog, p3*
Row 6 P3 *k3, p3*

On the last repeat in ech row you would leave out the p3 because you're knitting around and you'll come up to the initial p3. (If you leave in the final p3, you'll have a p6 which won't look so good.)
See what you think or maybe try it out on a small sample.

Thank you! I'll give it a try and see if this works.

I really appreciate you taking the time to do this!!!

That worked! Thanks so much! Now I can finish a blouse I've been working on--uhhh . . . procrastinating on!
