I've been reading about these spiral scarves
and I *need* to make myself one. However, I've never used circular needles before and I'm finding it hard to picture how it works. The pattern says you split the stitches over the two circular needles (as you end up with over 700 stitches in the row at one point) - I'd have thought you'd use the needles as regular 'straight' needles that are just longer. I can't get my head around how this should be knitted with the stitches split over the two needles. Can anyone shed any light on this for me, please?
