I don't see why double pointed needles. It may be that the size of the needles (#8's) is important. Is it larger than the size needle you are on now? If so, it may be that the pattern is recommending size 8to insure that you bind off loosely.

I'm supposed to be using #6 circular needles and then binding off in #8 double pointed.....So just using regular number 8's should be ok. I'm not sure what that looks like to bind off with needles other than the ones you are using....

It's going to look fine. It's just a way to make sure that you bind off loosely so the edging will stretch around the sweater and not pull. And of course, if you don't like it you can always take out the bind off and continue on the #6 needles.
