This is knit on DPNs, changed to circular, in the round and becomes square. I used the Norwegian Fir Stitch pattern, modified it to allow for increases and WAH LA! This 36" newborn blanket is made from Caron Simply Soft in Off White, using size 8(US) needles. Details are on my Ravelry page: Fluidity __________________ Mary custoMaryevents I'm MWhite on Ravelry, too...add me to your friends Last edited by mwhite : 10-12-2009 at 06:55 AM.

Well, the project is a newborn blanket. Not sure what you mean.
The term, "Fluidity" is defined as:
Pronunciation: \flü-ˈi-də-tē\
Function: noun
1 : the quality or state of being fluid
2 : the physical property of a substance that enables it to flow

The pattern was so named due to the fact that the circle flows into a square shape.

Shall we call it a "Squircle" Hey! New geometric name!!! Nope, look what I found:

Squircle

A Squircle is a portmanteau word used to refer to a mathematical shape with properties between those of a square and those of a circle. It is a special case of superellipse.

So then I had to look up "Portmanteau".....a word formed by blending sounds from two or more distinct words and combining their meanings

You didn't say what it was and while I thought it was a blanket, I didn't want to be presumptive. That's what I get for not clicking the link I guess. That is one gorgeous baby blanket!
