I am starting a knitting project after a long time. I remember knitting as a kid abt 18-19yrs ago using straight needles. I am having a baby girl in oct’11 (yay!) and would love to make a little something for her. So I decided to go with a hat. I have no idea how to use circular needles so I just bought US size7 needles and rios 63 natural wool. Now I started looking for patterns with staright needles (now i feel stupid, its backwards :))and found one. It is so hard to find hat patterns with straight needles! Here is my question
www dot knittingonthenet dot com/patterns/babypetalhat dot htm
the pattern in link above (replace dot by . ) requires size 6 and size 8 needles + worsted yarn. Can I use use size 7 needle? or do I need to have size 6 and size 8?
If you know of any patterns with straight needles, pleassee send me the link.
