I have two 6mm circular needles of different lengths. I followed this wonderful guide on how to knit using two circular needles. I tried making a small tube first and then when I sort of got the hang of it, I started working on this pattern I saw: One Day Beret. It's the kind of hat that doesn't really care about the gauge you have. What matters is the measurement of the hat. Since it's worked from top to bottom, it also gives me time to delay buying 5mm circular needles at this time.
What the hat started on.
I'm done with the rows with increases. I will be sleeping in a while so I just need to note my progress.
- increases for the hat - done
- plain stockinette - in progress. stopping at 2 rows for the moment
- computation of number of stitches for the band/ribbing - not yet done
I noted that 4 rows of stockinette is an inch long. Not yet sure how many stitches would make 1 inch.
