Hi Guys,

I really need help :)

I am making a hat on circular needles and the pattern called for size 7 "16 needles but I have size 7 "24 needles. Should I rip it out and get new needles or will my hat turn out ok?

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Hi :)


I'm only a novice knitter, but I believe that the length difference with circulars shouldn't make too much of a difference with the final product.


Hopefully someone else will know better :)

Thanks!!

I did end up ripping it out and getting the right sized needles. My head is big but not THAT big :P

Nah... your head is big. Maybe you should go for size 86"? LOL Kidding... Everyone, this is my friend IRL too so I'm just messing with her! She's quickly becoming a kick-butt knitter!
