I've used circular needles, but can't seem to handle dp needles. The beginning of this pattern says:
"Using dpns, CO 4 sts. Divide onto 4 needles. Join in the round, (k1,yo,k1) into all sts. Place end of round marker.
(k1,place marker, m1,k1,m1,k1) around
(k to marker,m1*,slip marker,k1,m1)4x, knit to end of round
Repeat from * until there are 116 sts, changing to circulars when ready."
From there, you just keep increasing at the corners in sections (stockinette, honeycomb, garter, etc.). No worries there.
The problem is the very beginning. Argh! The dp needles are flopping around. I can't even figure out how to join. I've never done Magic Loop or used 2 circulars. Are there any other ways I could get this started?
