Help with tunic

I have decided to do this pattern instead. I just bought circular needles. I’ve never used them before. Is there anything different I dhould know about knitting with circular needles.

I just want to make sure I’m doing this right.

I start working on the back peice cast on 194 stitches work 2 rows st st Why does the pattern say (includes 1 edge each side)? and why does it say remember the knittng gauge.

thank you

Hello! First, you should go back and edit your post to just provide the link to the pattern. Posting entire patterns is a no-no due to copyright issues.

To answer your questions–

Patterns often say that the stitches on each edge are edge stitches because those are the stitches that are used for seaming, and they aren’t generally included in the finished measurements. Just knit them as the pattern instructs.

As for the gauge question–most patterns have a caution to check your gauge, or pay attention to it, etc., because if you don’t your tunic will come out the wrong size. This is usually put before the instructions start, but my guess is that it is included within the instructions here because Drops patterns are translated into English, so the language isn’t always as precise in the English versions of the patterns.

ETA: Forgot to answer your circular needle question–No, there isn’t really anything different for this pattern. You aren’t going to use them to knit in the round–they just call for a circular needle because you have to cast on so many stitches and they won’t fit onto straights very well. You just need to work back and forth and turn them at the end of the row.

Thank you,

So I would use these circulars just like straight needles?

I don’t see where it says to turn work In the pattern Do You? If there is turn the work in the pattern How do I do that?

thank you

I tried to delte the pattern but I couldn’t

here is the link

It’s actually in the first line where it says work back and forth on circular needle. It means the same thing. So when you get to the end of the row, turn your work just like you would a straight needle to begin knitting again. You will end up knitting with the other end of the circular needle.

For editing your post–if you look in the lower right hand corner of your post, there is a tiny button that says “edit”. If you click on that, you should be able to edit your post to remove the pattern. If you are still having trouble, one of the mods should be able to help you out. :thumbsup:

Thank you for all your help
