The thing is- I taught my self to fair isle knit in one day, I practiced on a needle with a 16" circumference and it came out perfectly on the outside, except it was twisted. I know how to knit that way and it makes me feel really good, until I get so so angry with the way I don’t know how to keep it from twisting.
The girl who made up the pattern and ideas for the scarf I’m knitting never included how wide around the scarf is, so therefore I don’t know what length needle I’m supposed to have. Is it true that you are supposed to knit on a needle smaller than the width around of your project?
Tonight I bought a needle that is 21" around because I felt that the 16" was too short, and now the 21" is getting twisted up with every movement, twisting the yarn beyond imagination and making me want to punch a wall. I get very frustrated with things, especially when I know how to do what I never thought I could- do the pattern- because of the twisting.
Does anyone know of a way to describe to me an easy way to keep from twisting? Or have a video to show?
And also- the only thing I know is that the scarf is 72 stitches to a round, which means I casted on 72. What sized needle would I need then?
thank you all so much for dealing with me, I’m still new to this and my temper doesn’t help out I know, but I’ve been to the store every day for 5 days because there are no specifics to the scarf I’m working out and no one has pictures with a finished product, It’s all just guesswork and estimations, but I want it so bad I’m trying.
thanks for all your help and here is the link to the scarf if it would help out any.
