I was knitting with 3 DPNs the peak of the hat I’m working on (I [I]was[/I] going to use 4 needles, but a friend lost one of them:sad:), and when I got to round 6, I noticed how awful the edges between the needles looked (I believe they’re called “ladders”?). They were about an inch apart. After suffering for a while, I decided to rip off the knitting I had done with the 3 needles and wait for my friend to get me a new set of 5.0mm DPNs (I’d get one myself, but it turns out NO ONE sells them here, so I have to wait for a relative of my friend to arrive to my city).
How do I tighten the strands between the needles? And does using 3 DPNs give the same result as using 4?
