    got that myself but in the uk knitting is mainly done on 2 needles. a lot of american patterns I see use circular. Is there a way of adapting the patterns from circular to straight? or did I just find a gap in the market for a whizz knitter to fill?

      Unless the pattern itself is designed to be knit in-th-round (like many hats), you can use straight knitting needles for any pieced garment. There are many free patterns available for garments that are not in-the-round. If you haven’t already, you might join ravelry.com and browse the pattern index.
      Circular needles are great because they distribute the weight of the knitting evenly on both hands/arms, the ends don’t get stuck on things (makes them very portable), and it’s unlikely that you’d lose half the set since they are in one peice. I do recommend them if you haven’t tried them yet.

    Or if you want to knit in the round with out using circulars then you can use “Double Pointed Needles” DPNs for short. Personally I like circulars for large diameter knitting like hats and DPN’s for small diameter knitting like socks.

    Hi, This is my first posting to burda :) Have I found a knit/crochet free patterns for y’all! Their patterns are wonderful, bias opinion. Their yarn is wonderful and reasonable. They have 4978 free patterns translated to English. “Established 1982. Today DROPS represent Northern Europe’s largest brand in hand knitting yarns and knitting and crochet patterns. The DROPS collections are published in 14 languages and sold in over 25 countries.” I love the site!
