Looking for bigger charts?
They’re here, just scroll down.
I’ve received a lot of emails saying that the Charts on Knitty are too small to read properly.
So, below are my original charts, which were in my original submission to Knitty.
Please note that in my Original charts there may be a few errors. You’ll need to use your best judgement when knitting. The two PDF files that I have included are 17×11 inches. They can be printed out at Fedex Kinkos, or you may be able to figure out a way with your printer to print each one on two regular sized pieces of paper, and tape them together.
A whirling dervish of a knit that is not only worked in the round, Carousel can be worn differently by turning it around and around with a neckline that pirouettes according to your whim.
Worked outwards from a center cast on, Carousel is comprised of 4 cabled panels for the front and back. Once these four panels have grown to the appropriate size, each panel is placed on a holder, and the front and back are joined by uniting the matching pairs. Each of the four parts are again worked in the round to create sleeves, a hem, and a collar any way you spin it.
Perfectly symmetrical when finished, the charts may look complicated but once in the rhythm, Carousel flies off the needles. Lightweight and breezy, this is a merry-go-round of a knit, perfect for warmer days.
