I think it's easier to decreased than increase, so I'm thinking it would be easier to start with the big side and do it all the same size with the short rows to shape the curve, and start decreasing right after the curve....don't you think?
Oh, and I HATE the button on mine and cut it off right away. I only use the little loop thing, which I think would be easy to make with a thin I-cord loop at the end.
This could be fun as a group project. Maybe we should start some kind of a KAL thing to figure this out? I'm game for figuring it out as a group project. I don't think I could figure it out alone, but tossing ideas around might help a lot!
I have some cheap acrylic I'm going to fiddle with just for swatching and figuring, but I'm going to risk it when we figure out a final pattern and try it with regular cotton since that's all I'll have. I just bought some cottontots from someone's destashing on here.
