So Fun! This Knitting Circle jigsaw puzzle is such a delightful experience to assemble and who can resist these adorable little kittens. Then what is even more attractive is the creativity in the Artist's work. She pays attention to so much details. Some puzzlers refer to this as a 'busy' puzzle. Personally, I think details assist with assembly and it's quite interesting to discover the finer details a person normally will not see IF they did not assemble the image.

Title: Knitting Circle Jigsaw Puzzle
Artist: Lori Schory
Size: 26" Round BOARD ALERT
I normally do a thorough sort on a 1000 piece puzzle but this one is a round shape and quite colorful so I knew borders were not going to be distinguishable.
Instead, the sorting was resorted to a basic layout onto the foam boards.
I started with sections of the most solid colors being the beige, pinkish/purple, blues and brown/yellow carpet at the bottom. The image on the below-left shows how many pieces it took to establish the full border.
Sorry for the glare, but this big 26" round puzzle requires a bigger board than the 'movable' foam boards which are easily moved for photos - this on is not easily moved. However, the image on the below-right shares about 2/3's completed as the lighter purples, pastels and multi-colors start to find their place.
You will note that the majority of cats were assembled last as they are not so clearly defined in the pieces due to their resemblance to one another.
The following images share some nice close up details such as the all those cutesy Kittens. The artwork by Lori Schory is always so filled with attractive colors and intriguing details. She is well known among jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts. Sunsout sell a good majority of her images.
I highly recommend the Knitting Circle Jigsaw Puzzle and trying any of Lori Schory's other jigsaw puzzles by Sunsout but be prepared to be addicted to it until it is completed - yes it's one of those....which is a good thing!

Tips and Tricks
Introduction: Round jigsaw puzzles offer a unique and delightful puzzling experience, different from traditional rectangular puzzles. The absence of straight edges and the circular shape of the puzzle pieces present a new challenge and an exciting twist to the puzzling process. In this article, we will explore the process of assembling round jigsaw puzzles and provide helpful tips and tricks to enhance your puzzling experience.
Comparative Difference with Rectangular Puzzles: Round jigsaw puzzles offer a refreshing departure from rectangular puzzles. The absence of straight edges and the circular shape bring a new level of complexity and visual interest to the puzzling experience. While rectangular puzzles often rely on straight lines and edge matching, round puzzles challenge you to identify and connect intricate patterns and curves.
In round puzzles, the absence of corners eliminates the traditional corner-building strategy found in rectangular puzzles. Instead, you must rely on the interplay of shapes, colors, and patterns to find the correct placements. Round puzzle pieces also tend to have fewer orientation cues, requiring a more flexible and creative approach to assembling the image.
Conclusion: Assembling round jigsaw puzzles offers a unique and enjoyable puzzling experience. By sorting the pieces, focusing on patterns and colors, and working from the inside out, you can conquer the challenges that round puzzles present. Remember to use the puzzle image as a reference, rotate and experiment with the pieces, and approach the task with patience and persistence. The process of completing a round puzzle is a rewarding journey that showcases the beauty of circular images. So, grab your round puzzle, apply these tips and tricks, and immerse yourself in the joy of assembling this distinctive form of puzzling.
