Can I Substitute DPN's For A Circular?

I am working on a wristwarmer pattern. I have trouble with DPN’s and I really don’t like to use them. I do like circular needles though. Can I use circulars instead of the DPN’s? If I did, then how would I work the thumb gusset?

You can use longer circs and do this in a magic loop. It says you would start the thumb gusset 7 sts from the end of the last needle, so that would be 7 sts before the end of the round.

Of course you can! In fact, for a project like wrist-warmers, I’d think that DPNs are much better. So long as your stitches fit on the DPNs, that’s all you need to worry about!

Gofer it!
