For this shrug, it’s telling me to change needles after I have 8 inches until I have 23 inches and then change back to do another 8. Why, for a shrug?
I should say that I’ve changed the needle size, because of my gauge. I’ve only got 2 pairs of circs (still knitting flat), so I’m using size 8s and because I got 3sts/inch I’m casting on 48 sts instead of what the pattern calls for.
How necessary is it to change the needle size, do you think?
