Is it possible to knit a round opening in a rectangular piece, not in the round, just using straight needles?
I figure this is done with sweaters, but I know less than nothing about how to do that; is the opening done all in one piece, or is the piece divided and then knit together?
I’m doing a pashmina/stole and want to set-in a circle which I’m doing separately (long story…), and it suddenly hit me that I have no idea at all how to “make a hole” to set the circular thing into… I figure I can divide the piece into half, and make a “half-moon” in each half, then join the halves, but it’d be less messy if there was a way to “knit a round hole”.
Does anyone know if such a thing is possible…? I don’t even have any idea where else to look for possible information…
Thank you in advance!!!
