Hi, I am teaching myself to knit and have graduated to circular knitting and using dpns, because of the useful streaming videos from this heaven-sent web site.
I have followed the directions successfully for the basic rolled brimmed hat and transferred the work to THREE dpns (decreasing now). I am ready to start Round 11: K2tog, knit 3 to end of round.
Question 1. Based on the info above, what is a round considered to be when using dpns? Is it knitting off each individual needle or is it using all three needles?
Next, further down per the instructions, by Round 16 I should have 16 stitches left on “your” needle.
Question 2. Based on the info above, I am using three dpns, are the three dpns considered one needle? I do not understand how I end up with 16 stiches, when I initially divided up the stitches by 3 (divisible by 3) for the THREE dpns. I can understand 15 stitches or 12 stitches, but 16? How do you get 16 when using THREE dpns?
Last Question (3). Does www.knittinghelp.com sell a CD that demonstrates a basic roll brim hat, i.e., in particular, transferring work from circular needle to dpn to finishing?
