I'm trying to knit a cardigan for my imminent arrival. Link to pattern. I'm only on row 2 and confused!!
This is my first time using circular needles... to begin row 2... do I swap the needles in my hands like I would with normal needles, or do I slide all the sts along the wire back onto the left-hand needle and knit from the same end I started with on row 1? Does that make sense?!
it is confusing - what's the point of using the circulars! They are really annoyingly frustrating [/b]
I could have sworn I replied to this this morning. Oh well. I wrote the pattern to be worked on a circular as it is much easier to manage the shaping of it as it gets larger on a circular. You can do it on straights but it will get untidy. The cable just lets the cardigan fall in it's natura; shape as you knit it.
