Converting Patterns Confusion
I recently came across a scarf pattern that asked for the following:
123yds of super chunky yarn on #19 circular needles.
Casting on 100 stitches.
However, I purchased bulky yarn and #17 circular needles.
I am just curious if there is a specific way to convert this so that I end up with the right length (5 feet). Mind you the scarf pattern is to be knit lengthwise hence the 100 stitches. I have crocheted lengthwise before but never knit and that's where the confusion comes from. How can I tell when it is long enough on circular needles?
