Star and circular swatches
Hi,
I came across swatches in triangles, circles and stars, in aJapanese pattern book. Unfortunately, there are no instructions on how we can knit swatches in these shapes.

Does anyone know how I can knit swatches in star and circular shape?

Thanks,
Denise

Thanks for looking. The scarf you found is so cute!!!!
Seems like not many people knit 'non-square' swatches. Maybe I should ask what swatches everyone knits and what to they do with it....
