How would I knit a small flat circle?
Okay, I can't find this anywhere, but I'd like to know how to knit a flat circle. I only need directions to knit a very small flat circle wtih DPNs and then I'll make up the rest. I have Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn. I'm going to turn it into a pouch like I've never seen knitted before. I just got an acrylic ball and want it to be s scratch - free as possible. That's why I'm making it.

I'm thinking of making something that resembles a narrow bowl, but then extend it so that I can fold it over and sew it, and add a drawstring withOUT a lot of eyelets (maybe just two for the yarn to actually come out)

I would think you could just start with the Kitty Pi instructions, then stop when it was the size you wanted...

i would think it would have to. there may be some yarns that are harder to work with but that isn't any different than any other project. seems like as long as your needles match your yarn there shouldn't be any reason why it wouldn't work. no gauge is listed so ya know...
