I want to knit a square with rounded corners, and monogram his initials and date of birth on opposite corners. The initials on the top left and bottom right and d.o.b. top right and bottom left. My DBF suggested that I should have the monograms be adjacent to the corners- on the diagonal facing out toward the viewer, so that no matter which way they have the blanket turned the monograms are upright. I hope you can all picture that- imagine the corners make a V, when the blanket is turned on its ends, and the monograms will be across the top of the V facing you. When the blanket is laying flat, the monograms are slanted.
MY Qs: Has anyone ever done anything like this? I am unsure that taking charted letters and numbers and just turning them on their sides will not work. I want the letters and numbers to all be even and look uniform from corner to corner. Should I knit it as a triangle to start then form a square? But I want rounded corners- can I do that?
Thanks in advance for any help!
