The pattern calls for 2 8" circular needles size US 6. The knitting shop told me to use 32" circular needles size US 6 and use the magic loop. I have done this and have the round portion done -however, now to part that makes thumb opening. It says I will work stitches back and forth to create the thurmb opening using "both" circular needles as if straight needles. Does this mean that I need another needle or another set of circular needles. Totally confused.
Any help would be most appreciated
