Can you knit a skirt with straight needles?

Can you knit a skirt?

If you have a basic understanding of knit stitches, and if you can knit in the round, you can knit a skirt. The simplicity of the straight style makes this skirt suitable for a moderate beginning knitter, and more advanced knitters can customize the instructions with varied stitch patterns or shaping.

Do you have to use circular needles to knit a blanket?

I recommend ALWAYS using circular needles when knitting a blanket. You will still knit back-and-forth in rows, but the weight of the numerous stitches and growing fabric will rest on your lap as you work, rather than your wrists having to bear the strain.

How long do knitting needles need to be to make a blanket?

The most common lengths used are 16”, 24”, 32”, and 40”. These needles work well for knitting blankets. However, unless you always knit the same blanket with the same yarn, you’ll need to buy a different needle for each blanket you make. This can get expensive and create storage issues for all the needles you buy.
