knitting a jellyfish
So, I am taking a break from knitting hats because I want to make something for my mom. She lives in Santa Cruz, California, so a big woolly hat won't do, but! She's a docent for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I stumbled across Hansi Singh's pattern for a jellyfish, and I KNOW that is something my mom doesn't have and would appreciate.

The tentacles were super easy and are done, but the body calls for starting with 4 stitches on DPNs, joining, and increasing from there. She says you can also use 2 circular needles or "whatever you are most comfortable with." Well, I can't imagine trying to join just 4 itty bitty stitches on ANY type of needles.

There's a link on Ravelry, but you have to pay for it and download it, so I apologize for that, but my question is just how do you manipulate so few stitches. I haven't tried it yet because I have to get the DPNs, but I'd appreciate any input.
