20 january, 2007

Inspiration: A knitting book is a favorite bedtime read.  Last night I was browsing the "Round-The-Bend Jacket" chapter in Handknitting with Meg Swansen when the phrase, "turn a corner in garter-stitch", caught my attention.  Informative Meg even included directions for a turn the corner swatch featuring several variations.  Of course, I tried!
Yarn: Tahki's Cotton Classic
Needles: US 6
Num Sts: 20 stitches
Stitch: Garter Stitch
Source: Handknitting with Meg Swansen; page 74
Technique: Turning the corner in garter stitch.  When you turn a corner, you change the direction of your garter stitch by 90 degrees.

Neat -- if you planned your corner-turnings right, would you end up with knitted origami?

I've used this same technique to do a mitered log cabin blanket as a baby gift. Was fun to do.
