Too few stitches to knit in the round
I've knitted my first hat in the round...16"needles. Cast on 132. Have now decreased to 21 stitches. I’m supposed to continue until i have eight stitches but I’m having a big problem getting stitches on both needles to knit as If i get stitches on one needle I can’t get stitches on the other needle as there are too few stitches. Do i abandon it?
