I am a new member here and I’m working on a project with round knitting needles. I’ve been knitting a hat and it’s come along quite nicely but now I’ve run into a problem.
I have been decreasing the stitches on the needles, and now there are so few I’ve slid them right onto the cable once they are cast off the left needle. Now when they come to the left side of the cable, they do not slide onto the needle, as the cable is smaller than the needle and the stitch was pulled tight while it was on the cable. Now I am struggling to even get the stitches onto the left needle, let alone cast off onto the right one.
I’ve tried searches but nothing seems to answer my question. Do you have any ideas or tips for loosening the stitches a little to get them onto the left needle?
Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
