Circular needle help needed !
Hi, I am a fairly new knitter and have used dp's for socks, gaiters etc, and circs for hats. I jsut decided to try a Heidi Boyd pattern for the Swing Jacket out of her Soft & Simple Baby Knits, a top down seamless baby sweater and am having difficulty getting going. It calls for a 24" #8 circ with 38 stitches to start, then increasing as you go. My problem is that I can't see how to join this at the beginning since there are so few stitches, I changed to a 16" circ and it is still too long. Any help? Thanks!
