Knitting in the round and DPNs...need help!
For a few days now I have been trying to make Fuzzy Feet off of Knitty.com and I am having problems. It calls for the pattern to be done on 10.5 16 inch circulars and the first time I tried, there was no way I could do this. Tried again and had the same result, 44 stitches on 16 inch circs did not fit. So I broke out my 10.5 DPN's and it was no problem, but I may have confused myself on making a circ pattern into a DPN one. So I FROGGED 3.5 inches I knitted on DPN's so I could really give it a good try on the circs. This time it worked, I found out that the first times I was not making the co stitches loose enough but now I can't seem to keep it from twisting.

Please tell me I am not the only one to have had these problems, I mean the pattern even says that this is a good one for first time sock knitters!
Right now this seems to be the thing stuck in my mind, I want to conquer this pattern! Please help!

Knit the first two rows flat. Then connect them. Use the tail to stitch up the little seam left. So many fewer tears!

If it's twisting and you've been knitting around, there's no help for it.
