Circular Pentagons

More experimenting with the Magic Loop technique, there were no actual instructions for this, so I modified the ones for the square.

I’ve written the instructions for each round for each needle, I’m sure it makes sense!

1st Round: Cast on 10 sts, divide between the two needles using the Magic Loop method.
2nd Round: Knit
3rd Round: Inc in each st around. (20 sts)
4th Round: Knit.
5th Round: (1st needle) Inc, K2, inc, inc, K2, inc, inc, K1 (2nd needle) K1, inc, inc, K2, inc, inc, K2, inc.

Continue increasing as above on next and every alternate round, noting that there will be 2 more sts in the main increase, and 1 more st at the end & beginning of each needle. Cast off loosely after an increase round.

Enjoy 🙂
