# Thread: Perfect circles! May hve to do some math...

1. ## Perfect circles! May hve to do some math...

http://verykerryberry.blogspot.com/2010/08/circles.html

I read the instructions twice and I get it...slow learner. I see how the circles will be perfect. On my bucket list!

2. Interesting!! Thanks...

3. Hmmmmm that might give me the courage to try circles

4. The part that confuses me is the 3.5" diameter/ 1.75", Does the 1.75" refer to the radius of the circle (because with a 3.5 diameter the radius would be 1.75)? What does the / signify? Usually this is used to mean divide when math is involved but I don't think she means 3.5" divided by 1.75" Can someone clarify this please or am I the only one confused?
The rest of it I understand and it is a clever way to do circles.

That confused me, too - but I think that it does refer to the radius and that she just forgot to include the word "radius" after the 1.75"

For those that have sewn garments - this technique is similar to setting in a sleeve.
