When you use DPN you will only use two at a time regardless of how many needles you use on the project. I rarely use more than 4 total so three are holding stitches and one knits. Soon it will have the stitches and the empty needle will become the 4th.

The only reason I can see where using one less needle is a problem is if you need to keep track of a certain number of stitches on each needle and in inc and dec. is this what you mean?

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
