This is what I’m calling Centrino for now. With apologies to Laura Nelkin, the designer of this pattern. It may not be the kindest working title, but it is surprisingly descriptive.
As I showed you yesterday, this is what it looks like peeking out of the top of my project bag:
There are currently 432 stitches per round and it’s not getting any smaller. Oh no, I’m spiraling my way steadily towards a final count of 576.

This pattern is quite intuitive and logical, with the yarn-overs and decreases lining up just so. The knitting is easy to read, and I’m even getting quite good at tinking back through a centered double decrease… but I’ll try not to let it make me late for work again.
I wonder how much furniture I’m going to have to move when it’s time to block this…
