I have a question. I'm about to attempt to knit my first hat, and I wanted to clarify a few things before I started. Here we go!
1. I'm knitting it in the round, so I know that eventually I'll have to switch to DPNs. Would it be easier just to start with them in the first place? Or should I start on circs and switch to DPNs when I need to start decreasing?
2. The template/pattern I'm using says to knit a gauge swatch first. Once I've knit and measured that, can I frog it and then re-knit it into the hat?
3. I've never used DPNs before. Any tips? Am I being too ambitious to try this? I *have* knit in the round before...I made a booga bag on circs.
Phew! That's all (for now).
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!!
