I’ve started a pattern for a hat and it was my first time knitting in the round. Everything has gone smoothly except for when I started the decreases. The pattern says nothing about switching needle sizes or anything and I am using the length of cable and size needles suggested in the pattern, but my stitches are getting so stretched out that I can barely knit them anymore. I am at 56 stitches still and you are supposed to go down to 4 before the pattern says anything about changing needles. Am I doing something wrong or missing something?
It won’t let me post the link now, but the pattern can be found at ThePurlBee.com and it is the Little Fair Isle hat (in case you are interested) - I am midway through the “baby” size hat for the decreases.
