Pattern question

I found this pattern on the Lion Brand web site for a glittery evening bag. The pattern says to work the bag in the round. The only needles listed are #8 double pointed. How can you work in the round with double pointed needles? I assume that the dp needles are for the i-cord handles.
Any suggestions?

Dpns are used for working small diameter things in the round. Like socks… You could probably use Magic loop or 2 circulars for this though.
