I was working on a baby sweater and the instructions for the sleeve are done using dpns.
They are as follows-
LEFT SLEEVE (knit in the round)
Place stitches on needles and join being careful not to twist the stitches.
Round 1: knit
Round 2: purl
Round 3-7: knit
Round 8-9: purl
Round 10: knit
Continue to knit until piece measures 5 inches from separation from body.
Next 2 rounds: purl
Next 5 rounds: knit
Bind off all stitches loosely.
Im a beginner knitter and have never used dpns. Is there anyway to make the sleeves on a straight needle? how do I modify the pattern to do so? I know i will have to sew the seams but thats okay with me…
