Hi I hope someone can help. I've looked at a couple of Youtube videos but can't seem to find an answer to this very basic question. When using a circular needle do you just keep knitting? ie no purl rows. I have used circular needles before to do the necks on jumpers but as that is always a rib, I have never really thought about it. I am trying to knit a scarf that is knitted as a tube so there is no front and wrong side. TIA.
Darn it! Well not literally, four rows in and I twisted it. My circular needle is really too long, the actual needles are too long. I am tempted just to do it on 4 needles (I am sure I purled on 4 needles). Either way it is a trip to Dunelm Mill tomorrow.
If your circular needle is too long, like 100 cm, you should try magic loop. You divide the stitches half on either needle, last stitches worked on the back needle. You pull the needle out from the back stitches so those stitches are on the cord and knit the stitches on the front needle. When you have knitted thoseyou line the stitches up again. It sounds complicated but is actually quite easy. I've knitted three Hogwarts scarves! I think I actually used a 40cm circular needle but recently I've been knitting hats and it's less of a strain on the hands to use magic loop.
