I'm really new to knitting and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I have knitted 2 pairs of socks so far, both on 5 dpns. I have a pattern for a pair of socks using berroco sox yarn, and it calls for two 16 inch circular needles in size 3mm. But I knit up a gauge swatch using a size 3 needle, and it was way too big! Any sock I knit on a size 3 would be enormous. So I think to get the right gauge, I need to knit with 2.5mm needles, but I don't have any circular needles that size. Can I use the same pattern but with the dpns I do have? Do I have to do anything to adapt the pattern? Sorry if this is a totally stupid question.
