Hello, I have just started this pattern: http://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archives/2008/01/supersimple_fas_1.php
I am using the right needles (16inch from point to point). When I cast on the required number of stitches, the yarn has to stretch impossibly. It is impossible to straighten the stitches or anything, it’s as if the needle is too long which I know it isn’t (well, it is the needles the pattern asks for anyway) What am I doing wrong? This is my first time knitting on circular needles. Also, what does it mean by join in the round? When you knit on circular needles, won’t the yarn join together anyway?
Thanks for reading and I hope you can help!
