If you've worked the legs and the purl bumps are on the outside, flip them inside out so the V's are on the outside. Then use your circular needles, making sure that the tips are toward you and the cord is away from you. That will put the knits on the outside.
I used to do this all the time, and couldn't figure out how come my knitting was different! Make sure your knitting with the two closest dpns to your body, as opposed to knitting with the farthest away pair.
