So this is the 2nd or 3rd time i've had this dilemma.... it's making me wonder what I am doing wrong! So I cast on for the kittyville (http://kittyville.com/knit/kitty_hat.html) hat... doing the called for 84 stitches with worseted weight yarn. I used my 16' denise... but when i go to join i discover the needle length is too long! So I tried switching the cords, and it's still too long! I'm afraid if I try going any shorter I won't be able to join. Ugh! What am I doing??

Could it be that you're putting the 16" cord on with the needles? The 16" measurement should be from needle tip to needle tip.

:doh: that would explain everything! I'm so glad I realized this now!
