I have a beret pattern I want to try for my dd. This will be a first for a hat.
The beret starts from the top down. You cast on a total of 16 stitches and do a KFB stitch for increases.
It said for needles, that I needed a PAIR of size 8 dpn’s. A pair??
Then it said to join in the round. How do you do that with 2 needles?
Do they really mean four of them, which would be 2 stitches on each?
That leads me to another question. I have tried in the past to start dpn’s with such small numbers of stitches. I ended up with a knotted mess. Any helpful hints? I honestly couldn’t make out what needle went where.
