I’m a new knitter, and I’m doing my first knitting in the round. My pattern (a baby hat) calls for sz 9 DPNs (I have the Harmony Wood from knitpicks). I am part way through and, wow, I really hate it. It’s awkward, and I have messed up my rows somehow, and it’s just generally sapping all the joy out of knitting at the moment.
I was thinking I might try circulars instead. Couldn’t I just follow the same pattern on the circular needles? Do certain patterns have to be done one way or the other? Am I kidding myself that circulars will be easier?
