I have a little problem. Wanting to expand my knitting experience, I was planning on knitting a sweater. However, every pattern I have seen calls for several varying sizes and lengths of circular needles.
So here are my questions:
Is it true that sweaters can only be knit in the round?
When knitting in the round, is it possible to switch stitches? I had been under the impression that the stockinette stitch was all the circular needles produced, and I had been hoping to use the Fisherman’s Rib for the sweater.
Do I really need 5 different circular needles to knit a sweater, or can it be done with fewer (preferably only one)?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
