This is my first time. I am trying to use a flat pattern for circular needles. What do I need to change? Thank you
Assuming you are still making a flat item, nothing.
Just CO to one of the two circular needles, then put that needle in your left hand, slide the stitches to the tip, and with the other needle in your right start knitting as per normal.
You should never slide the stiches across your cord from one needle to the other, that would be like using your circular needle as a double point needle.
What are you making? Do you want to knit in the round, or just use the circs to knit flat?
Thank you. I know how to do the knitting on circular needles. The problem is to make a pattern for a textured stitch for straight needles work for circular needles. Thanks
Show us the stitch pattern.
Yep, we need a lot more information to help you. Do you have a link to the pattern you’re trying to work?
1st ROW:(right side) K1[p1,k1]31 times
these two rows form the pattern and are repeated
Omit K1 on first round, the 2nd round will be K62. just learned how to do this myself.
Thank you, thank you. I also have a much more complicated one, but I will finish this one first and then ask you about that.
Thank you so much, Lilly1
I"m knitting a sweater for my first grandchild on circular needles. I need to know if, when using a pattern written for straight needles, do I have to change any of the stitches where the front sides and the back meet? Both fronts end with a moss stitch and the back begins with a moss stitch. This changes the pattern from doing the moss stitch over an odd number of stitches to doing it over an even number when combining the stitches at the sides with the stitches on the back so when I get to where they join should I begin the moss stitch again (which would put two knit stitches side by side) or should I continue with the moss pattern to the beginning of the cable stitches (which would make me begin those stitches after a wrong/different stitch than the pattern calls for)? Which would be less noticeable on finished piece?
