Um, you need 4. Three with the yarn on and one to knit with. You basically need an empty needle to knit off one needle. When that one becomes empty you use it to knit off of number two, etc, going around the needles in turn.

LOL. Thanks Ingrid!!! I was wondering how many I'd need :rollseyes: . I still have 3 more pieces that length and was thinking of doing 2 more at the length as the first 3 then 2 short ones. Obviously I'll have to review Amy's double-pointed needle video too .

Ok, I've made 2 more DPNS and a couple short ones for cables or something. Slipped the stitches evenly on to them and whallah! I edited the above photo to show the dpns in the hat. Thanks for the heads up, Ingrid.

Oh and they work too! And I did one row with them without having to frog (There's hope for me yet)

Oooh, that hat looks lovely!

And congrats on making your own dpns! If I'm ever in a crafty mood (beyond knitting, of course), I just might have to try that, if only to supplement the dpns that come in four-packs rather than five. (Makes me so mad! )

WIP - First Hat
Where could I get the pattern for this hat? I really like the style! It's so bulky....did you knit with 2 strands? Love it!
