So im making a beret for the first time on double pointed needles and i have not yet got to the "now switch to double points" but for some reason i dont see how those bad boys are going to stay on without slipping off... am i so wrong? do those stitch holders work?? or am i being a drama queen and i just dont know what im talking about??  Huh




If you live in So. California (LA,OC,SD) message me... I want to put a little craft group together!!!

Unless your tension is really, really loose, they'll stay on (unless you load each needle too full of stitches).  If you're still concerned, you can use point protectors to make sure they don't slip off.

Or be like me & collect way more than 4 or 5 DPNs per size. Wink 

If you're hesitant, there's always using alternative small diameter knitting methods. Smiley Knitting Help

You can tie rubber bands around the ends you aren't using.

If you use wood or bamboo DPNs they grab the yarn better and don't let it slip off as easily.
