knitting a flat circle on straight needles?
Hi,
Can anyone help with how to knit a flat circle on straight needles? I know this can be done as did this a while ago but seem to have lost the pattern. I know you have a seam to sew up at the end, which runs from the centre of the circle to the outside edge or vice versa.

Many thanks
Viveka

You could do it with a series of decreases or increases and you could also do it with short rows. Here's a few patterns that are for other things, but knit flat and seamed so you can get the basic idea.

Scroll down to view the pattern for the circlular blanket.
