I would like to try this pattern:http://www.littlebellesoakers.com/do...tspattern.html
but the pattern calls for 4 different needles. the gauge is 5st/in. I have to go up in needle size to achieve this gauge,so I have size 10.5 dpn's can I just use these throughout the pattern? I can't seem to find 12" circ's in any size locally, and the only place that seels 16" circs is my lys and she charges 15 bucks for them. Since I'm not sure how this pattern is gonna turn out I really don't want to spend that much just on needles.
I believe that there are a couple of other KH'ers working on these very soakers right now. Maybe if you change your title to include the name of the pattern, they'll see your post and be able to tell you what they're using. (I would think that you could use DPNs instead of 12" circs, but I haven't read through the pattern very thoroughly.)
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
