Hi, I’m new here, and this is actually my first post! My hubby started knitting a few months ago, and so I couldn’t let him get the best of me, so I had to learn too! lol
I am working on a bag that will be felted, and I got the bottom piece done (28 st cast on, 28 rows). The instructions say to pick up 14, 28 and 14. Ok, no problem.
Well I’m using size 15 circular needles, and the problem I’m having is that when I go to pick up the 28 stitches, they are way too tight to get back up on the large needle! They are the original cast on stitches.
Soooo… my question…
Do I just need to cast on more loosely? Is there anything I can do to prevent them from getting so tight? Any ideas/help is greatly appreciated because I’ve already taken it apart once and I don’t want to have to do it again!! lol
Thank you, thank you, thank you for any help!!!
This one is so appropriate right now -> :wall:
