using size 8 circulars and 3-ply sayelle (acrylic) parisienne DK yarn from mary maxim. cast on 150, joined in the round for a cowl/neck warmer. now, trying to do a pattern of:

knit 2, yarn over twice, knit 2 together twice
knit 3, yarn over 3 times, knit 2 together 3 times
repeat from *...
(all in basic knit stitch in-the-round, btw, since i know that'll come up) so that it has an all over lighter/lacy appearance, and it's not working. i don't seem to have enough 'stretch' or extra room in my first working round, to get the "knit 2 together" more than 1 set at a time. i used long tail cast on, and doubled the needles. not sure if i should re-cast using 9s or 10s doubled, or what...
