First time using to knit in the round. calls for 16" circular needles with a cast on of 84 stitches. work in ribbing, 2x2. Problem is the tubing keeps kinking on me at attachment to needle. Needle part length is 5+ inches and straight. What is the problem? What is the best needle to purchase when doing hats like this?
I've been using 16" bamboo circs for my hat projects of late. I have been doing the casting on and ribbing with DPNs, as it just feels better to me until I get to the increases and the project can fit on the needles more comfortably.
Knitting to keep my sanity. It's working... kinda...
