hi! I am new to the forum and knitting. I have been a crocheter for years but decided to take up knitting so I could knit cables and I love it. There is a pattern I want to make for a cable prayer shawl but it calls for a circular needle and I really don’t have the $ to go buy one but I have the same size in straight needles. It is a rectangular shawl. Can I use the straight needles or do I have to go buy the circular? All I have in circular is small needles and this calls for a 13.
