I’m fairly knew to knitting and though I understand most of it, I’m having trouble with knitting in the around. Not so much actually doing it, but getting the pattern right.
The pattern I’m using is for fingerless mittens (from the winter knits kit if anyone is familiar with it) and the pattern uses worsted yarn and size 5 circular needles. I have worsted yarn, but I only have size 2 circular needles (and dpns).
This is where the stupid question part kicks in… Can I use this pattern with size 2 needles? The problem that I’m really encountering is the cord seems too long to make gloves, it seems like it would be for small hats. If the cord was shorter, could I technically just cast on more stiches to accomodate the pattern? I’m not really sure how circular needles are really supposed to work so any information on that would be really appreciated.
Do I have to buy size 5 needles, or can I do this with the needles I have?
Basically I’m just confused. :-/
