I've been knitting for a year and in that year, I've learned a lot of things. I can do socks and Fair Isle and all sorts of complicated things. But I cannot, for the life of me, prevent my ends from...

So, this is how it works:

Go 'round and around for 8 rounds.

Then stop. You have this work on 4 DPNs. When you reach the end of the round, instead of connecting it, you flip it around and then go...
