I guess you could slip the sts to the larger needle, but you don't need to bother, and they'll be tight and difficult to work. It's quicker and easier to just knit from the needle they're already on. In fact, when knitting in the round I routinely use a smaller left needlet. It just makes it all easier and faster.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
