Honestly, I got so frustrated with it that I am just starting over. I probably should have taken the time to rip back properly but I just noticed all these weird things happening and let my frustrations get the best of me!
My question is when I switched to DPNS I somehow got two big holes in my knitting. I also noticed while knitting that I was somehow knitting the purls on the outside of the hat, when they are supposed to be on the inside of the hat. I have no idea how I started to do that. What would have caused that?
Another question is, if I am switching to DPN's from circular needles, do I need to join it like the woman says to in this video at 6:20? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrfSQNgROpM I didn't join them together and just started knitting, do I need to join them though if I am switching in the middle of a pattern?
I know everyone told me it's easy to get the hang of, but I found it to be pretty confusing.
