I am trying to knit the ‘Slouched Garter Hat’ from DK’s ‘Big Book of Knitting’ and I’m a little confused with the pattern.
For those who have this book, it is on page 103. I’m relatively new to Knitting Help so I don’t know how to post a photo yet otherwise I would upload an image of the specific part of the pattern i’m stuck on for context. Anyway, here goes!
The pattern asks for 2 sets of needles:
Needles A - 1 pair of 3.25mm (UK10/US3) needles
Needles B - 4 x 3.75 (UK9/US5) double-pointed needles or 40cm, 3.75mm (UK9/US5) circular needle
The pattern then asks you to cast on 108 stitches using needles A. Simple enough.
However, it then says ‘Join in the round being careful not to twist stitches. Place stitch marker to indicate start of round’. It then asks you to stocking stitch until you have 4.5cm of brim.
My question is, if i am supposed to be working in the round, shouldn’t I be using needles B rather than needles A?
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
