I want to knit a hat for a friend, and today we went shopping for the yarn and needles. The pattern (http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pithyhat.htm
*the green one on the left*) calls for different sizes of 16" needles. I dont know if these are rare or hard to find, but we went to 2 different stores that carry a lot of different knitting stuff and we couldn't find the necessary sizes at ALL.
So my question is... Can I knit the same pattern, but lying flat? I would think the only difference would be that doing it flat would require seaming, but thats fine... but just to make sure, does anyone know if thats possible? To take a pattern that calls for circulars and just do it flat? Thanks for any help!!
