I’m knitting a hat with circular 8" size 3 needles. The instructions say to decrease the top of the hat until only 6 stitches remain. However, I have about 30 stitches left at this point, and the circle is too tight to knit with the needles. I’m sure there’s a technique to handle this, but I don’t know what it is–and I’ve Googled but can’t find anything.
Can anyone help? Even knowing what term to Google for would be helpful.
