6 thoughts on “HOW TO – Knitted Beer Sweaters

  1. Confused about the beer sweater. You used set of #3 double-pointed needles. Or, should one use a round needle to knit in the round. When you say CO 16st and distribute over needles, I am a little confused. Can you explain, please?

  2. I’m not the author of the pattern but here’s my thought – you have to use double-pointed needles, not the circular needles because the project is so small it won’t comfortably fit around the circular ones. so when she says distribute over needles, she means use 3-4 needles and have 5 on each (with one with 6) or 4 on each (depending on how many needles you use).
