Turtleneck Shrug questions
1) Am I the only one who ignored the decrease directions for the top of the sleeves? I didn't like the way it looked and I have a feeling it'll fit my shoulders better this way. I know I'll have to decrease by three stitches when I start the neck to keep the ribbing pattern right (I'm making the neck wider just because it's easier and because it'll mean it won't rub on my neck so much) - no worries there - so I'm not concerned about that, I'm just curious.
2) When it comes time to start the neck, am I going to need a longer circular needle? I'm sure I could fit the stitches onto my current 11" circular, but I'm not sure if I'd be better off using another, longer one (I have a 17" bamboo circular in the right size that I could use if need be) to keep the stitches from being so cramped. If I should, any suggestions for how long of one I should be getting?
