Knitting neckline with circular needle problem.


#1

I am beginning my first sweater which is to be knit top down. I have cast on 88 stitches on sz 3 - 16" needles. My problem is the length of the needle itself…it is causing me to stretch the yarn. If I use a longer cord there is too much cord (if you understand what I mean). How do you complete this…I thought perhaps the magic loop method but was not sure. Would appreciate your help. Thank you so muc!

Magic loop on needles with a longer cable would work. What weight yarn are you using? Can you tell us the name of the pattern?


#3

Yes, The pattern I’m knitting is Super Simple Summer Sweater by Joji Locatelli and the yarn is a 50% wool and 50% cotton yarn, The name is Mungo from Portugal. 100g =220m = 240 yd. I hope this helps and thank you for getting back with me. :heart_eyes:
