I'm a rookie knitter working on an afghan that is knitted in the round. The pattern started with the middle of the afghan: 8 stitches on double-pointed needles, with gradual increases every other row until the project became big enough to transfer to 29" circular needles.
However, now that the afghan is getting too big even for the circular needles, the pattern calls for me to switch to 2 pairs of circular needles. I'm nervous about making a mistake because I already have a lot of stitches (and hard work) on my needles. I've seen someone link two sets of round needles with some sort of plastic connector doodad before, but I don't know if this is a typical technique.
Can anyone offer some hints or links about knitting a large project in the round on two circulars? Thank you! I really appreciate any help.
