Hey everybody! I’m working on some illusion knitting right now and making my own charts. The patterns I’m working on are all circular. When I finished the first one and laid it down, it looked pretty elliptical. I know that the way you chart for illusion stretches it out a bit. My starting chart was 60 stitches wide and approx. 55 rows.
I read through the jigsawknits page and I know it recommended keeping your chart under 40 rows to keep it manageable. Is that 40 rows before you re-chart it? Or should I try scaling back the original chart? This will be panes for a blanket so I don’t want them to shrink too much, but I want circles, not ovals.
Should I try making my chart more squat before I re-chart it?
