Spring beret
This isn't technically a "how to" question but I'm going to put it here anyway.

I wanted to make my daughter the Spring Beret http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=89411&highlight=spring+beret

The pattern calls for size 8/9 24" circular needles, and the pattern even mentions that "interchangeable needles work well here." I use KnitPicks Options and have the right needle tips and the 24" cable. I cast on 74 stitches, but the 24" cable is way too big. The yarn is really stretched all around the cable and made it too difficult to knit. I guess I'm going to have to buy some fixed circs, but I wondered if anyone else who made this beret had the same issue.

I have made the hat and know I used my KPs (only needles I do use)...but I can't remember if the cable was to big or not. You could just split the sts and knit it magic loop

You can use the single loop variation of Magic loop to get it started. Once you do the increases there will probably be enough stitches to fit around a 24" needle, that's what I do. Then when you decrease at the top, you can use the single loop for a while, then Magic loop at the end.
