View Full Version : Convert pattern from circs to straight?

02-11-2005, 10:20 PM
I just bought a lot of a zillion pair of needles on eBay so I don't want to buy any more. But there's a pattern I want to make on sz 11 circs, and guess what my score doesn't include????

Any advice or sites on converting a sweater pattern to straight needles?

I'd just get a straight pattern to work from. Most sweater patterns are knit straight, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a good pattern.

If there's a particular stitch pattern you want to incorporate, let us know, and we can help you translate it from circular to straight needles.

Hope that helps,

I need to know the opposite. How do I convert a straight pattern to circular knitting. I am used to using straight needles but have experimented with circulars and think I prefer them for knitting sweaters. It seems to workup faster then doing it with the straight needles. If anyone knows a website or can tell me how to do this let me know.
