will 39 sts be long enough? Most likely I will work with 5 mm size needles, I do have a 10mm but the sts are so loose. I've checked the scarve that I'm currently working on with the Comfort worsted yarn. And I'm able to get 6 sts per inch on 5mm size needles. So if I wanted it to be 9 inches wide, then I need to cast on 54 sts. Is that right?
I have another question for you, if you don't mind me asking. When it said to slip the first 3 sts, do I just slip it off the left needle and transfer it on the right needle, and then continue knitting/purling?
Thanks so much again suzeeq.
