Ok, I must be getting really really annoying to a lot of people because I've been posting tons of stuff here.... but I can't figure this out!
I finally broke down and bought 16" circular needles as required by this pattern (i'm making the green hat on the left/the pattern on the top) http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pithyhat.htm
(well, I bought the interchangable needles so all I have to do is unscrew the top parts) The only thing is, the CO doesnt fit all the way around the circle! I watched the vid on circular knitting, and Amy said that you can't do magic loop knitting on 16".... is there any other way to make it fit?
Maybe I didn't make the right purchase... I bought the cable separate from the needles themselves, so maybe thats why they don't fit? The cord's package says 16"... well idk, if anyone has had this problem before please let me know, I'm getting really frustrated!
