I've only recently begun knitting and I've had a question on my mind from the start, and now its come to the point where I need to find out.
How do you knit something really wide or tall, like a blanket or a shawl? I doubt people use 6 foot long knitting needles to hold all those stitches, and in stores, I didn't see any circular needles that have enough cord to be useful for that.
The answer to this may be quite obvious, but I can't figure it out.
I think I read that circular needles will hold about 3 times their length in stitches. So with a 30" one, you could put up to 90" of stitches on it. I started a Pinwheel sweater, and by the BO row I was using 3 circs on it because it was approaching 50" across (which is over 150")
