Hi, is there any way to finish a baby hat on circular needles without switching to DPN ?
You can use two circular needles of the same size, magic loop or DPN. All of these methods can be used start to finish on a hat so there is no switching to another method to decrease. My choice is magic loop. I prefer a longer cable like 40", but some people don’t mind smaller like 32". Smaller than that really won’t work for magic loop.
The only time I use DPN is for very small diameter items…like a small stuffed animal or doll leg, etc. They can be done with magic loop (or two circs), but there’s a lot of switching sides quickly so I use DPN usually. I do use a 32" circ magic loop for adult socks though.
