Hey everyone, I'm Billy. I'm probably the only 17 yr old male on these boards, but hey, it's alright =D
Anyway, I've made a couple scarves and I decided to try my luck at a hat. I've been using this pattern, using size 11 circulars (16") instead of 10.5's, since that's what I had. I just reached the point (the k6, k2tog) where the stitches are getting too tight to keep going on the circulars, and I need to switch over to DPNs. Being unprepared as usual, the only DPN's I have are size 8, and after a quick run to a couple of different stores, the only DPN's I could find were a rather expensive set of 10.5.
My question is this: Is there any practical method to finish up the hat without purchasing anything new, or do I need to find a pair of size 11 dpn's online? Or, if need be, should I suck it up and buy the 10.5's at the store, if that's a possibility?
Thanks in advance,
