I am considering starting a Pi Shawl and couldn’t decide what size needle to use and decided the best way was to give it a shot with some leftover lace (and also wanted to try Emily Ocker’s cast-on.)
The problem I am having is with the YOs when still a small number of stitches on DPNs or magic loop or what not. I find rounds beginning with YOs awkward to begin with, but now that I’ve transitioned to a 16" circular, I see that the YOs at the join points on those first few increase rounds are HORRIBLE, like the tip of my pointer finger fits through those, but can’t even get the tip of my pinky into the non-join-point YOs. Of course once transitioned to the 16" needle and working in the round, this will no longer be an issue, but are there any tips/tricks for making these nicer and more uniform to the others in those beginning rows or anything?
Thanks in advance!
