  1. I'm a novice knitter, so please excuse what is probably a silly question. This says to "join for working in the round". What does that mean? Do I use three needles? Can you also do this project with circular needles? I would love to make these for friends and my own baby, so any hints are appreciated.

    Thank you!

    1. "Join for working in the round" just means to connect the ends to make a circle. You can use circular needles if you have some small enough... Addi 8" or 12" would probably work. A lot of people use the "Magic Loop Method" for it, you can google it. Good luck! :)

  2. I only have size 3 DP needles - how many stitches should I CO?
