What can I make (free pattern) that uses size 10 needles?
I tried to make dh a hat and it was ERNORMOUS. But I can't afford any new needles right now and God help me, I don't know how anyone finds it fulfilling to make a scarf! I have a really long (29") size 6 needle as well as size 6 dpn's but I am not sure magic loop would come out well since I am a newbie and my tension isn't always the best. I have a son that is a size 4 and a son that is *almost* outgrowing size 12 month, I'd love to make something for them.

Man, I hate being poor. Being poor sucks.

what kind of yarn do you have to work with? you could probably still do the hat just adjust the cast on stitches.

did you frog the yarn from the too big hat so that you can use it again?

Rebecca...or anyone..
Rebecca I have a question. I am trying to do the hat pattern you've posted here. I've got my cast on stitches on my size 7-32 inch circular, but it seems to be pulling a lot and I'm afraid it won't join properly. Is that too short a circ for this project? I've got 100 stitches cast on.

32 inch circs are way to big for a hat. Maybe even too big for some sweaters. You should probably go with 16 for a hat.

i am sorry this made me giggle cuz i was imagining that head. unless you are knitting that flat, that would have to be a reeeeeally big head to use the 32 inch circs.

Well I was thinking of magic loop since I just learned that, but it's not going to work for this. I need either longer (like a mile) or shorter like the 16in. Guess what I'm doing tomorrow.

I'm so, so sorry that you have to go buy more knitting supplies. Don't you just hate when you are forced to do that?



NOT!!

Well the only reason I hate it at this point is because I want to start it NOW!!! Dammit! And the other reason...is....I'm not supposed to buy anything because it's close to Christmas! Shhhhhh... I'll hide them! :devil:

Just thought of something...can I do double circs on this one? And would they have to be the same length as the one I have?
