I am knitting the Flap Hat on page 14-15 of One-Skein Wonders 101 Yarn Shop Favorites. I don’t know when to switch from circular needles to dpn. It doesn’t say in the pattern or how many dpn to use. It gives instruction for knitting the band and knitting the hat. It then gives instructions for decreasing for the crown. Do I have to switch at this point? I go from 44 stitches to 37. Knit 1 round. Decrease to 30 stitches. Knit a round. Decrease to 23 and so on until I am left with 8 stitches. Is there a set point I have to switch or do I switch whenever it doesn’t comfortably go around? How many dpn should I use?
I am using US 13 circular needle 16” and have size 13 dpn.
Thanks in advance,
