Large Teething dolly – In the Round
This version is worked in the round, from the legs up. Use an 80cm circular and work with a magic
loop.
Abbreviations
TyoL Twist yarn over left - knit into the back of the yarn over
TyoR Twist yarn over right - reverse yarn over, then knit into front of yarn over
yo yarn over
Instructions
These instructions produce the same outcome as M1L (make 1 left) and M1R (make 1 right). Instead
of lifting the yarn between stitches a yarn over is carried out in the row below. This is necessary as
there are increases in every row, instead of alternate rows
TyoL similar to M1L
This will close the yarn over up and give the stitch a left lean
TyoR similar to M1R
Slip yarn over knitwise, then insert LHN back into yarn over from the back and place on LHN in
reversed position. Now knit the yarn over through the front of the stitch (a bit fiddly at first) this will
twist the yarn over so that it leans to the right
