My pattern tells me in the "materials" section that I need size US 8 straight needles and a US 7 16'' circluar needle. But, in the direction for the sleeves, it says "With MC and larger needles, cast on..." and mentions nothing about a circular needle, but also says nothing about sewing together the seems of the sleeves. Should I use the circular needles for the sleeves? And, if not, why was it included in the materials?
Thanks so much!
