When I go from straight needles to circular needles making a baby dress

by Sharon

I am knitting a baby dress. The pattern uses straight needles to start with, and then transfers to circular needles. It is a knit and purl pattern. When I start using the circular needles, so I still knit and purl, or just knit? Don't understand.

YOR ANSWER


It depends. If the pattern tells you to join your knitted piece at the ends and to knit in a contimuous loop, you would knit all rows.

However, if the pattern tells you to change to a circular needle purely so that you have more room on the needle for all the stitches, you would knit one row, then turn the work as you would with single needles and purl the next row.

I suspect that as your pattern is for a dress, you would be knitting in a continous loop but I would really need to see the pattern to be sure.

The pattern directions are to knit all rows once connected on the circular needles.
