  • knitting question.

    Might seem a stupid question, but I'm prepared to look thick.

    I'm doing a pattern that says

    Next row: knit
    Change to 3 1/4 mm needles
    next row knit
    next row purl.

    Do I do that 1st knit row I've just mentioned on my 2 3/4 mm needles and then transfer all the stitches to the 3 1/4mm needles or could I get away with knitting straight onto the 3 1/4mm needles before then starting the st-st? I'm a bit lazy at times.

    Have never heard of transferring stitches from one size needle to another. All you need to do is, at the end of the knit row you'll have your stitches on the 2 3/4 needle, then just knit off this with a 3 1/4 needle. The following purl row you'll then be using the two 3 1/4 needles.

          I have a fair few rows to knit before I get there, but it's good to know in advance!!

            Yep I agree with Angi- no need to transfer over just knit onto the next size as she says.
            keep those needles clicking ;O)

              When it tells you to start the new row with the larger needles you simply pop your free smaller needle into your knitting bag and use the first of the larger size needles, then when you have finished that row, put the other small needle in the bag with it. Do not do what I do and put them in a safe place and forget where that is!

                I did that and lost one! I don't know where it has gone, it has vanished!! I've looked in all the obvious places ... down between the cushions, under the sofa, its gone!! Luckily I do have extra sets but I am now knitting on an 'odd' set (both the same size and length but with different ends). A case of the borrowers me thinks.
