Ah! Do you increase on RS or WS rows?
Does it matter? I suspect it would matter with a pattern stitch.

Eight (8) is such a nice number, but what if your pattern repeats are multiples of 5 or 3 and not 2?

The other question is then what increase to use. It seems the kfb (knit in front and back of loop) is leaving a purl bump on the RS of my swatch.

By the way, I don't suggest anyone try to magic loop with a Boye fixed circular. It was all I had in my bag, yesterday.

The cords on the Boye interchangeables are much less flexible than on the fixed circs. The older Boyes had thinner cords and are very flexible though.

Just my two cents worth....I really believe that the rate of increase is determined and has alot to do with needle and yarn sizing and basically guage. It looks like you're making the circle larger but it is actually a spiral. I'll have to agree with Suzeeq...4-8 every other round usually creates a nice flat circle.

Saw a small pattern book from Bernat using Softee Chunky yarn. You can see the pictures in it online at Bernat.com. Book is 530184 called "Get Cozy". It is $3.95 at Michaels (4 afghan patterns).There is a knit. circle. red afghan done in sections and I believe all garter stitch. You might be able to use the center directions for your smaller project. At least you can check it out. It might give you an idea how you might proceed. Jean

Replace the cords on the Boye's interchangeable needles. You can do this with the plastic refill to a ball point pen, a candle, some glue and lawn trimmer cord. This gives a nice flexible cord of any length you want.

I just have one cord, I snapped the join on another. Since I don't use this too much, I'm fine. But that's a good tip for others.
