    why do you need to leave enough yarn to cast off, if you have live stitches on a circular needle?

      Yep, I usually leave about 3x the length of the thing I’m binding off

    I’m in! Question: if I change from Garter to Stockinette with the same yarn weight (different color) – do I change needle size?

      I don’t THINK you will want to change needle size, but I would just cast on, work a few inches, and see if you like the fabric you are getting. It’s so dependent on what kind of yarn you are using etc.

    OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS! My chance to hack has presented itself. Does it count to maintain the stripe and the garter stitch and hack the shape to a crescent rather than a triangle? Must research how to do this. If I’ve just inadvertently committed knitting sacrilege please forgive me. I love love love TCK and so enjoy supporting what you all are about. I’m actually planning to knit through the simple collection with a friend whom I’m teaching to knit. Happy holidays and keep up the good work!
