unfortunately no, it's an Erika Knight pattern (I talk more about it here). It's a very pretty pattern - I wish I could post the picture from the book, the baby wearing the bonnet is just so gosh darned cute!

#1
I do #1 too (using two different sized tips to fake two circulars) on my Denise set. The only problem: I'm a fairly loose knitter, so I'm often using #5s, which is the smallest size you get in the Denise set.

I realize this is WAY after the fact, but thank you for those tips! I received the Denise needle set as a gift a few weeks ago and enjoy it, but I was wishing I had some DPNs to make I-cord with (as a relatively new knitter, I haven't yet moved into using DPNs, though I plan to soon), and now I can do it!

Also, I wanted to thank you, Amy, for your terrific videos! I am a lifetime crocheter and always struggled with knitting; I could DO it (knitting English), but didn't enjoy it and never sought to really improve my skills. After looking at your videos awhile back I decided to try knitting Continental style and everything finally clicked into place! I've been knitting up a storm ever since. So, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Regards,

Patricia :D

Stitch holders
I love using the cables as stitch holders. When I need to knit that part, I just snap my ends to the right cable. I especially love it because I tend to twist stitches or split the yarn when I use a traditional stitch holder.

So has anyone with Denises actually tried the lifeline trick? I would hate to try it and then have the tip come off in my work!

Re: FOUR clever things to do with your Interchangeable needl

1) Use the "2 circular needles" method, with JUST the needles from your one Interchangeable needle set!

(What's the "2 circular needles" method? See Small Diameter Circular knitting, here.) Obviously you can't make 2 complete sets of circular needles of the same size, because that would require 4 needle tips of the same size, and you only have two in your kit. But what you can do, and this works JUST as well, is put the size needle you want to work with, on in the right hand side of each pair of circular needles. Mis-match the sets with a smaller needle on the left side. Because you're knitting ONTO the right size needle, in both cases, you'll have the correct gauge! The needle your knitting OFF of can be smaller, and it won't affect your gauge! In fact, if you're a tight knitter, this is a good idea anyway!
:
I have a question about this idea for you folks who have done it.
Because there is a smaller needle on one end, and you slide back and forth, won't you be knitting onto the smaller needles every other time?
Or are you stopping and changing needle ends?
I checked the video and saw that yes, you are working off one needle then the other.
I don't see that every time you are working off the right needle. It is once working off the right needle and next working off smaller needle.
Where am I confused?
