This is amazing Sue! I can just see how to do so much. I have been playing around with a circular blanket/afghan that I could utilize a striping pattern - I can see it working with the wedge style - love sew as you go so that would be easy to match up the stripes. Off to my machine I go - you have go my juices flowing yet once again. Great little program and thanks so much.

This is a cool tool. :) I just used it to compare it with a recipe I use to make short-row cat beds (that get felted) and it comes out equivalent, though I make 16 wedges instead of 8 and return 3 sts every 2 rows... with an extra 4-6" of stitches that don't short row, to make the side edge. Link is to my blog article from when I knitted the first few of them...

You could use the wedge style to make a Christmas tree skirt with holiday designs running around the outside edge. Instead of knitting to a point on each panel, stop when you have decreased to the number of stitches that is equivalent to 1" and bind off. This will leave a hole large enough to go around the tree stand. This works if you put the skirt around the stand before you install the tree. Another approach is to leave one seam open so that you can put it around after the tree is up and decorated.
