How to change a straight pattern to circular needles
I have a pattern that I have knitted on straight needles a few times and i love the look and texture of this scarf...but I would love to make this pattern into a cowl without having to seam the ends..

I have tried to figure this out and made a mess of it each time..

the pattern is:
Row 1 (right side) knit 3, purl 3 to end
Row 2 Knit 1 Purl 1

can someone please help me?
Thank You very very much

Right Sue and long as it's a multiple of 6 you'll be fine. I read it wrong and goofed on my answer. :doh:

You can do the RS row just the same over a multiple of 6 sts, but the other row will have to be reversed and backwards, which actually would end up the same - k1 p1.

Round 1 : K3, P3
Round 2 : P1, K1

Be sure you casted on a multiple of 6 stitches.

I'm working now this pattern in round ;)
