Hello, seasoned knitting veterans! I'm still very much a newbie, and I'm about to graduate from "scarf." It was suggested that I attempt a simple, triangle-shaped shawl. I looked up a pattern (THIS pattern, to be precise), and it suggests size 13 needles. But given that the shawl will be fairly wide at the finish, how can I do this on 14 inch straight needles?
Do I really need circulars, even though the pattern doesn't suggest so? Any advice on how I might complete this? Thank you!
