YOu knit 5 stitches, and then place a marker. This will be the beginning of your rounds from now on. You pick up the stitches as you would when knitting flat. Put the needle through the edge from front to back, wrap as to knit, and pull it through. I suggest measuring where the center of the edge is and making sure that you work half before the center and half after the center for a more even pick-up. You could even divide it into fourths.
If you find that there are too many stitches for dpns, you could use a circular. They probably use the dpns for the childrens' size and don't bother to mention that a circ might work for adults.
