I am making a beanie and it calls for double pointed needles - I've never used them so I'm confused as to what to do when I get to the place where it says to change to the double pointed needles - it is followed by the following instructions: Rnd. 1 [k6, k2tog] around. (84 sts); Rnd. 2: Knit; Rnd. 3: [k5, k2tog] around. (72 sts)
Rnd. 4: Knit; Rnd 5. [k4, k2tog] around. (60 sts); and on and on - my question - how many stitches do I put on each set of double pointed needles? Is it 84 on the first set, 72 on the second, 60 on the third, and on?
Appreciate any guidance -- many thanks
