I'm making a ribbed knit hat for a Christmas gift and I didn't have a short round needle.
I added a couple of stitches to the pattern and a smaller needle, but it's 22" long and it seems like I'm stretching it too much.
Will it snap back or should I make a seamed version? Help please!
It is probably too late now, as this was about a Christmas gift, but if you don't want to go out an buy a shorter circular needle (or two - for smaller items I always use two as I find it easier to work that way), then I would have gone with a seamed version of the hat.
Not because of the stretching but because working on a needle with the stitches stretched that far would make it very difficult to work with.
Wool is usually pretty forgiving and will go back the correct shape if you wash it.
