ok as some of you know i knitted a pair of booties that were too big. so i started on another pair on a size 8 needles… my frustion lies in the needles. is their a reason a pattern would call for 16in needles? because the needles that i used before were 16in and the ones i’m using now aren’t. i don’t know what they are BUT i can’t pick up the stiches on the other side of the sole because i can’t bend it around. i prolly didn’t explain that very well but hopefully someone will know what i’m trying to say.! is there another way i can do it? maybe not knit in a round and just follow the dirctions straigt and then sew it together??? maybe… i know trust the pattern… maybe???
Since the pattern was written for bigger shoes, maybe the 16’s won’t work. Maybe you can switch to dpns?
and … :shock:
I guess I didn’t understand. I thought 16 in circs wouldn’t fit, so I thought if you broke it down on dpns you could get it around. No?
yes thats right… i’m asking you how to do that meaning and whats next! i’ve never knitted on dpns just and I-cord!
I couldn’t possibly explain it clearly enough. Check out the video. It looks very impressive, but once you know how to knit, it’s not difficult, at all.
I assumed since you made needles, you used them too! :roflhard:
you know what… i don’t know why i made those. i needed them for some project by got side tracked and started something else! :doh:
ok i’m going to watch the movie. thanks for you help… i mean video!
I had that trouble and I just grabbed another needle that size and picked up the stitches, put them on the circs and went on til I had to pick up more and did the same thing again; I hope that made sense. I just didn’t feel like I had the room to pick up stitches with the circs so I used a single straight one to pick them up and knitted them from that onto the circs. :happydance:
ha ha… funny you should say that because i didn’t have enough #8 dpns so i used me circs!!! great minds think alike!
AHA! Kool! Very cool–when you got it, you got it!
