Help with beanie pattern
I have been knitting for about 2 months....though all I have made is scarves. LOL.

So I'd like to make a beanie and this is the pattern (except I'm starting with all one color) I'd like to use...

http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting...don-beanie.htm

I'm a little confused on the circ needle thing. Would I have to use needles with the cable inbetween that is EXACTLY the length of the stiches I have?
I didn't pay attention (silly me) and I bought bamboo 29" circs.
Anyways I can take those back and exchange them tomorrow should I need to.

It appears from reading that pattern that I would use the circs to start with and then when I start decreasing transfer them to the DPN's...is that correct?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

BTW...I learned to knit entirely from this website it is WONDERFUL.

I don't think that 72 st will fit on a 29 in needle. You can always go smaller than the circumference of the article you're knitting, but not longer, unless you use a magic loop or 2 circ method. You might want to save those. Or, if you're adventurous, you could learn them now. I've been knitting for more than half my life and I just learned them myself.

Anyway, a 16 inch circ would probably be right for this hat. I have circs in all sizes and lengths, so you might want to keep the longer ones for future use. But then again, I am a glutton when it comes to knitting supplies. :rollseyes:

Thanks So much. I would keep them but DH has been pestering about Michaels showing up every other line in the checkbook So I'd better just exchange them for now.

well i don't know how much help i am going to be but i can say that when you are looking at circ length you want to measure tip to tip, not the cable. I think i have used 29" circs for some of these afghans i have started. I think 16 is prolly a good size. i am surprised that the pattern didn't tell you how long. hopefully someone will verify for us but i do believe the 16 is a good choice.

I have started just taking money out of the ATM because for some reason he doesn't question too much me wanting to have cash on hand.

But he is half right....I have my yarn basket over flowing, yet I always NEED something new...

i know, i always need something too! my other secret is to use my card when i get gas, but pay inside and get cash back (instead ofpay at the pump). then "casey's gas" is in the checkbook, and cash is in my pocket, with no atm charge or yarn store listing :-) woot woot!
