Coverting knitting in the round to straight knitting

I am making golf club covers. The pattern calls for double pointed needles but I am using two straight needles.

When the patterns calls for (1 round) do I knit 1 row and purl 1 row; (2 rounds) knit a row, purl a row, knit a row, purl a row?

Thanks!

YOUR ANSWER


No.

With circular knitting one round is one row not two. So your first round would be a knit row and the second round would be a purl row.

Circular to straight needle on golf club covers
by: Bonnie

Wouldn't you just do your increases or decreases on each side of your straight work? You would have to work out the numbers fron circular to straight.

DPNs for golf covers
by: Nittykitty

This is a very interesting story.

You are knitting golf club covers
with straight needles. Golf clubs
are rather small. I think that if
you were to work in D.P.N.s you
be able to make the cover taper
at the shaft and be much larger
at the largest portion of the head
by employing increases and decreases.

You would be able to just knit
around & around until you finish.
then go on to the next one.

If you don't know how to use D.P.N.s
Learn from Lucy Neatby's DVDs
covering circular knitting. Go to
Lucy Neatby's web site and check on
all of her great DVDs.
