Knitting with dpns
I'm working on a hat. This is the first one I've knit, as well as first time I've used circular needles. I haven't had a problem knitting in the round, however, I've gotten to the point in the directions where I'm decreasing. The pattern tells me to change to double pointed needles when there are too few stitches to fit onto the circular needles. Will I expect to use two, or maybe three? And wouldn't there be a problem with them sliding off the open end of the needle? I'm a little nervous to switch to them now that I've gotten the hang of the circulars. My hat looks great up until this point and I don't want to ruin it. Any tips would be helpful. Thanks
