Pattern help please for knitting in the round vs. flat
Hey ladies - I'm working on a pattern but it is knit flat - I want to convert it to knitting in the round - can anyone help me please - I'm just unsure how to change the ssp and p2tog for knitting in the round - I'll post 2 lines here and maybe someone can help me

I'll put X's in the #'s so that I'm not posting the exact pattern.

row 1 -Px, Kx, k2tog, yo, Kx, yo, Px, yo, Kx, yo, ssk, Kx, Px
row 2 - Kx, Px, ssp, Px, Kx, Px, p2tog, Px, Kx

so do I replace P with K stithces
and
the ssp on row 2 with k2tog's
and
replace the p2tog on row 2 with ssks

so would row 2 be:
Px, Kx, k2tog, Kx, Px, Kx, ssk, Kx, Px

You would have to do Row 2 backwards as well as replacing Ps with Ks and k2tog. So -
Px, Kx, K2tog, Kx, Ps, Kx, SSK, kx, Px.

Thank you for asking this question.

Is there a book that can guide someone through changing a flat knit project to a circular knit project.

I was wondering why so many patterns are still written for flat knit, when circular seems so much faster in some cases.

I hate seaming, so was thrilled to find a book on designing your own sweaters in the round. I have already made a pullover and a cardigan and have gotten a way better fit than I ever did following a pattern.
I have a large stash of yarn and always had difficulty going through my patterns and matching what yarn I had to a design worked in a specific yarn.
It seems there are more books out there that encourages you to free think design and compensate for personal body shape.
