SPINNING TOP BLANKET: Preparing for the join, circle to square

CIRCLE TO SQUARE: Blocked its approx 15-16" square


Preparing your 4 or 9 x 16" motifs for joining..this pictures is only a mock up there are more rows before you actually join the squares together.


ROW 1: att yarn in ch3 sp of the first diamond, hdc [htr], in the next 5sts, hdc [htr], in the next 3 sps, (that's the ch3 sp of the triangle), the next ch3 sp, (the diamond) and the ch3 sp of the next triangle making 8sts for each pair of diamond and triangle.


 repeat hdc [htr], in next 5 sts, and the next 3 x ch3 sps, to the end, sl st to complete. (144sts)

ADDING CORNERS
You now have the correct number of sts to divide the circles into 4 sections
4 x 36sts, using stitch markers.

4 colours requires for each circle, each corner in a different colour 

 Add a 4 round granny shell corner to the 4 corner of each circle.
You will use 25sts, of the 36sts. Leaving 11sts, unused.

NOTES: These corners are like making the start of a Granny Shell Shawl, you need the ch1 between the granny shells for ease, because it is to go around the curve of the circle. 
And you need to do a longer st as the first st for each granny shell next to the circle, again for ease, (thats just the first st not the complete granny shell).

 miss 2sts, 1tr [1dtr], 2dc, [2tr], ch2, 2dc [2tr], 1tr [1dtr], in marked st, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, ch3, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, along, turn.
