I have finished the 4th ball on my Garter Stitch Wrap.
This is enjoyable knitting for watching telly. It is all garter stitch with 2 yo and 2 ktbl in each row. The Heirloom Celtic is nice to work with. Its good that it is enjoyable – means it won’t end up being a UFO in the bottom of my knitting box. We goal is to have this finished by the end of the year.
The current size is a triangle 56cm high (22″) and 112cm (44″)across the base.
So this means I have an area knitted that is 22×22=484 square inches. So for 5 balls I will be able to make 484 x 5/4 = 605 sq in.
This will give me a triangle with a height of 24″, or a final square with an edge length of 48″.
This should be able to be blocked to 51-52″ . The length down the arm should be approx 36″ so below finger tip length when hanging loose.
About the same as my estimate from 2 months ago – got to love maths.
