My friend is having a baby and I found this amazing dalek dress pattern online and downloaded eager to start. However the pattern starts with " Cast on 25 stitches and join for working in the round"
Then it looks to me like a regular knitting pattern.
I have never knitted ‘in the round’ before. There are no diagrams in this pattern and I just have regular needles. I kind of live in the middle of no where and tried to find circular needles but was unsuccessful. But even if I got a hold of some, how will I know I’m doing it right if there are no pictures. I looked up videos on youtube but they all have completely different results and usually have one end which is closed so they come out with a tube (like fingers for gloves or drawstring bags) so I’m now completely confused.
I saw online in another forum that a lady who also did not really know how to knit in the round altered the pattern so she just had to sew it together, which to be honest I prefer but I’m not sure how to do that.
The pattern doesn’t state I need circular or double ended needles, just regular needles size 5 and 7. Maybe Im being obtuse but I can’t figure out how to do it.
