When I knit with dpn it ends up "inside out." When I knit the knit sides are all facing each other inside my needles. What I see is the purl side.
A while back I started knitting my daughter a hat with a circular needle. When I switched to dpn and "knit" I ended up with a purl row and had to purl the rest of the hat in. Make sense? Here is a picture on my blog.
I'm knitting a pair of baby pants and I've got the legs finished and I'm supposed to transfer it to a circular needle to make the hips and waist. I'm trying to make sure that I don't make the same mistake that I did with the hat.
I hope that was more clear.
