dpn question
Hi there,
Im finally back. Didnt have a computer for awhile. I have a question. I've made a couple of socks and want to venture to a more intermediate project. I always use 3 dpns and the 4th one to knit. I want to make a sock that calls for a total of 5 dpns. Now, I can figure out how to divide them onto my 3 needles, but when it comes to the pattern, how do I knit it according to their instructions on 3 needles? Wont my pattern be off because I have a different amount of stitches on one needle then they do? Does that make sense?

There should be no reason for the pattern to be off, other than you will just have to be aware or mark where inc/dec may happen "at the beginning of next needle"

It would just be a matter of being super concious

Just use stitch markers for where the ends of the needles would be if you were using 4 needles.
