Seed stitch with DPNs
Salutations all,

I am completely at my wits end as to what on earth I'm doing wrong so if any of you could provide some assistance or shed some light I would be incredibly grateful because I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here

I am a fairly regular knitter and like all of us have made a few attempts the first few times but right now I'm trying to knit some fingerless gloves in seed stitch on DPNs and just cannot seem to get the stitches to work.

Knit is no problem for fairly obvious reasons after the cast on, but when I get to purl I have issues.

I finally realised I'd be passing yarn front to back from purl to knit over and over throughout the entire project and the only way I can figure to do this is obviously through the middle of the work itself... is this the easiest way or am I missing something?

It's okay for the first few rows I'm sure but it something gets a little longer it's going to be rather painful.. am I just being precious or is it not supposed to be that complicated?

Would love some assistance..

You move the yarn between the needles if that's what you mean, same as you would on regular needles. Also it comes out right if you have an odd number of sts so you don't end up with 2 knits or 2 purls together at the end/beginning of the rounds.

By that you mean moving the yarn from the back when doing a knit stitch and then to the front when you purl the stitch? Sorry if I didn't explain myself terribly well

Yes, moving the yarn to the front or the back between the tips of the needles. With dpns, you're still just knitting with 2 needles, the others are only holding sts until you get to them.
