I feel silly!
I am very new to knitting and am going to make this blanket:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTwildstripes.html just as soon as I get my needle situation figured out (see another post of mine titled Errrr, I’m frustrated (not necessary to read this to help guide me, but feel free if you want) http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=88897
Anyway, I don’t know if I’m over thinking things because I’ve never done anything like this, but what do I do? Here are the basic (and I’m sure simple) directions that are giving me fits (in my brain):
Use 1 32" US #5 circular needle
CO 158 sts.
Work in stockinette st, following stripe pattern from chart.
I did some looking and figured out stockinette was knit one row, purl one row but do I still do that when using the circular needle? I just can’t picture this in my head - has anyone seen a good video that would help me to understand? I thought I knew what I’d do, but now I think if I tried what I was thinking of I’d end up with a tube! I’m a visual person and could use some video or picture guidance here, thanks!!
