It's working....


Well, I think I've discovered the secret..

I switched from dpn to 2 circulars as explained here at KnittigHelp.com and it works! I completed the first pattern part of my scarf last night, and started the hat again until I could get the additional #3 needle I needed to continue.

The other thing I learned is the idea of "loose while firm" knitting - keeping the fabric on the active needle spaced out in order to carry the threads, but keeping the stitches ON the needles the correct tension...

Anyway, I'm now moving forward!

Hi Beth... thank you! :) This is the Dale of Norway Osterdalen scarf (I'll try to post a picture of what it's really supposed to look like soon!). I'm doing the scarf and hat as beginner projects.
