Hi, I'm Ali and I've been knitting since January-ish. No problem so far except I'm knitting this hat:
Here's the link:http://knitonthenet.com/issue1/patterns/clochestashhat/
This is the part I do not understand at all: Change to 5mm DPN's by knitting across 48sts on first DPN, and the next 48sts with second, pick up and knit 20sts down open back seam of hat, then 20 up other side of open back seam with third DPN. (136sts).
Would you all mind helping me out?
Also, I have a question, I'm what you call a nervous knitter. Weird awkward social interactions result in me pulling out the latest project. People don't really care, but Dr. Shrink says that it's being used as an unreliable escape. But i disagree, it's relaxing and challenging, I could be smoking crack as such "escape" What is your opinion? Do you knit to calm yourself and you're a tiny bit obsessed with yarn running through your fingers?
Thanks so much for any help offered, I appreciate it.
