Knitting is usually pretty accommodating. It will stretch and bend and drape and generally do what you ask if you ask nicely enough. But this? This really wants to be a slightly smushed trefoil, and you aren’t going to convince it differently.
This is the re-knit for Adumbrate (in some of Dream in Color’s Everlasting DK in a color I will look up later). I’m finding them terribly amusing and enjoying their willful nature far more than I should.
