knitting flat circle with a chunk not there
So I promised my friend that I would knit them something "cheesy" for Valentine's day. So, I am knitting a block of cheese. Now I know to knit a flat circle, but I'm not exactly sure how to make it look like someone cut a triangle out of it.
Anyone have ideas?
Thank you!

Plot it out on a piece of graph paper with colored pencils or markers. Or you can use this chart-making program:

Then do each row the way you plotted it.

I've never done something like that, but I would think knitting something that would be a circle then using decreases or increases to create the wedge...

Oops, I thought you wanted the cheese "printed" on a background.

Thank you!
An easy circle is to increase 16 stitches in 8 evenly spaced pairs
every fourth row. This would be in the round - which you can't do with a slice out of your Cheese.

To make a flat circle with a "slice" :

Do a total of 12 increases every 4rth row (every other rs row)
in 5 pairs plus one on either edge. If you are using a selvedge, put the singletons just inside the selvedge and space the five pairs of increase out evenly across the row. you should end with six wedges

For a narrower "slice" use six pairs plus the two singletons - giving you seven wedges.

If you use yarnovers on the edge and increase at the points with k1, O, k1 in a single stitch you will not end up with the rows of eyelets dividing your cheese.
