OMG! I don't start with circular needles like the pattern says.
"With larger needles and MC, CO 4 sts and begin inc's:
Needles: sizes 3.5mm and 4.5mm circular needles, 16: or preferred length if using Magic loop method.
I started with 4.5 mm circular needles and can't join these 8 sts.
What type of needles should I be using? double pointed needles? I'm so confused
