I have a question about changing needles when knitting in the round. I’m a fairly new knitter, and just knitted my first hat. The instructions called for knitting the bottom ribbing with a size 6 needle, then changing to a 7 for the remainder of the hat. I couldn’t find instructions anywhere online or in the knitting books I have about exactly how to change needles (which surprised me), so I just slipped the stitches purlwise onto one end of the new needle. It seemed to work OK, but I’m wondering it that was the “right” way to do it?
Thanks in advance for any help!
