I am working on a water bottle holder using DPNs (my first). The bottom of the holder is done in all knit, and I did not have any problem with that. The body of the holder is another story. Stitched up in YO, P2Tog or K2tog, YO, I am finding it impossible to keep the stitches from slipping off the end of the needle. The YO stitches are impossible to pick up after falling off.
I decided to put this project (described as easy by the designer) aside until I can as my more experienced comrades for advice.
