Circular knitting with only 24 stitches
I am knitting wristlets.
They are knit in the round, however since there are only 24 cast on stitches the 16 inch circular knitting needles are too long.
What can I use instead?
You have a couple of choices when you need to knit in a tight circle like this.
The most common method is to use double pointed needles
, but I prefer to use two circular needles instead.

I find that you don't get the "ladder effect" when you use circular needles that you tend to get with double pointed needles.
