Converting a cardigan pattern to circular needles

I am a beginner and found an easy cardigan pattern with instructions for straight needles. However, I only have circular needles and do not mind steeking, but I am unsure of how to convert the straight needle pattern into a circular pattern. Is there a guide on how to do this somewhere? I know about converting stitch instructions from straight to round, but this is a jump for me.

Also, while I’m here, I have had a terrible time in getting stitches onto scrap yarn for sleeves and thumb holes. Is there a trick to doing that?

If needed, the pattern is [B][U]here[/U][/B]

You can work the sweater as written on circular needles and just knit back and forth–no need to steek and no need to switch up the stitches. It probably would be easiest to work it as written on circulars since it’s not worked like a traditional sweater–you start with the back, go up over the shoulders, and down the front.

To get stitches onto scrap yarn, use a large-eyed sewing needle, or, preferably, a tapestry needle and just thread the yarn through.

I’ve even used a folded paper clip for this when I was at work.:thumbsup:
