Turned the Corner

Is it possible to turn the corner on a round shawl? It’s been an awfully long time since those geometry classes in junior high, but I’m pretty sure circles don’t have corners.

I’ll just call it a term of art.

I’m halfway through the border of Centrino… check it out:


I’ve done 18 repeats out of 36, and it feels like the finish is actually in sight. If I keep going at this rate, I may be able to finish two shawls in a month!

    I love knitted-on borders, especially when I get to the point where the end is in sight.

    I love the border too – it is unending but as you turn that corner/ half way point it seems to speed up

    The idea of turning the corner on a circular shawl seems counter-intuitive but I understand exactly what you're saying! Knitted on borders add such a nice touch that they're worth all the work.

    Actually, I love it just like this, unblocked and all. It reminds me of a coral reef!
