Oh, I should mention that I use 5 needles rather than 4. I think it makes things a bit easier, since you don't need to cram as many stitches onto each needle, and also since your needles are making a square rather than a triangle, they are easier to manipulate.
I AM A BEGINNER, BUT I HAVE READ ALOT OF "HELP" WITH THE SAME ISSUES....NO ONE EVER SAID I COULD USE MORE THAN 3 NEEDLES...THIS IS GENIUS. ALSO, I AM USING SIZE 8 INSTEAD OF 7'S.....ALL GOOD.....I REALLY CAN DO THIS (I HOPE)
WORRIED ABOUT IF I DROP A STITCH THOUGH......
THAT'S WHY I THINK I SHOULD GET LONGER NEEDLES??
I AM TRYING TO MAKE THE ROLLED RIM CHEMO CAP
APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE!!!
