I'm new here.
I want to knit my first hat but the pattern I want to do is calling for use of straight needles and I want to use fixed circular needles. I don't like the seam you get when you sew flat pieces up.
The pattern calls for 9mm needles (size 13) basically I want to know if this pattern can be done in the round as it is without me needing to change it and what size circular needles will I need?
