So I've only knitted a scarf once I'm a big crocheter but my pregnant sister just had to fall in love with a knitting baby blanket pattern! So now I shall expand my knitting horizons. Now i haven't really tried it out yet but wanted to save myself alot of frustrations by asking this first. How the heck do you knit a blanket thats wider than your needle is? I mean I've seen blankets that are big enough for beds. How do you do that? The baby blanket will probably be small but I'm worried it wont fit on my needles. So do you have to have gigantic needles to do a blanket? Or a round needle set with a HUGE connector... seems like that would be in the way alot.... Anyways if someone could answer my question that'd be wonderful! I'll also hang out in chat awhile if people want to discuss it there. Thank you for answering what I'm sure is a simple question! Oh and I'd really love to start the blanket soon the baby's already a backing doncha know! lol
Edit: Also wonder which kind of cast on people recommend for baby blanket that will have fringe on the bottom and top side? The one I've used previously is the knit stich cast on I believe.
