I have posted once about this pattern that I found for a patchwork afghan http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/proj_kn_0899.html
hopefully the link works, but any way it calls for working with 2 strands of yarn and working on 13" needles, my 1st ? is can I work this pattern with one strand of yarn and smaller needles and just CO 66 sts instead of 33?
Next ? is working on circular needles do you keep the cord behind the project your working on or in front?
