    Straight needles come in lengths ranging from 8 to 16 inches. Most small beginning projects such as scarves or children's garments are best completed on 10-inch needles, but larger projects such as adult sweaters require a 16-inch needle to accommodate all the stitches. CIRCULAR NEEDLES Circular needles are typically used when knitting in the round. Knitting on circular needles produces a seamless, tubular piece of knitting, perfect when creating a hat or the body of a sweater. Circular needles come in various sizes: 12,16, 20, 24, 32, and 40-inch lengths are available.

    The best thing to do is to inspect your work often, counting your stitches and making sure that your pattern looks the way it should. If you do find a mistake in a row that you have just completed, you can simply "unknit" the stitches in that row: 1. Identify the point in the row where the mistake was made (in this case, an errant purl stitch in a knit row, four stitches back). 2. Insert the tip of the left needle into the stitch below the incorrect one. 3. Ease the working yarn out of the stitch and pull the right needle out.

    At the beginning of a new row, cut the working yarn you have been using, making sure to leave at least a 3-inch tail. Have the yarn you want to join ready. 2. Make a loop in the new yarn and slide it over the needle. Leave at least a 3-inch tail to work in later. 3. Pull the loop of new yarn through the first stitch. 4. Continue to knit with the new yarn, being careful not to pull the tail through the first stitch. S. After you've knit through four or five stitches in the row, turn the work to the back and fasten the two yarns with a square knot.
