This is VERY true. I had much much better luck with dpns on a size 8 than I had on a size 3. I still prefer magic loop.

Ingrid, thanks for mentioning "really small stuff".
Even if my hands aren't knitting, my mind is. I went to sleep thinking that I will eventually need to use DPNs to do the very top of the hat.
Am I right?

Also: What are purse legs??? :thinking:
*Knit, rip*, repeat between the *s as many times as necessary.

I've used 2 circs to finish the 2 hats that I've made and didn't have any problem using them at the very top of the hat.
