I am very new to knitting. I have been making a prayer shawl...not counting stitches. I started with casting on 60 stitches. I have done knit stitch with several rows with size 13 needles, and am having a hard time since there are so many stitches when I finish a row. Is there a way to work around this, besides getting larger needles? Also, my next project may be to count stitches....how does that work, because if you start with 12 stitches, by row 2 you will have 24 since when you wrap the yarn around the needle each time, you are doubling the number of stitches. I would appreciate any help.....sorry if these seem like really elementary questions.
