I have to tell you, this is the thing that made me get out those stupid DPNs I bought a year ago and had only ever used for I-cord. And, it was not nearly as scary as I thought! I wanted the mittens so bad, I just went for it! The hardest part for me was keeping track of which needle went where while doing the cables, since all five needles were in the knitting at once, but if you go slowly you can do it! The pattern I used called for them to be knit with magic loop, but that scares me more than the DPNs so I used the DPNs for the whole mitten. A trick I used that helped a lot - knit the first row before you join to knit in the round, it's much easier to see that you've not got it twisted that way. And when the time comes to put the thumb stitches on a holder - I used tripled-up scrap yarn as my holder. Flexible, doesn't interfere with you knitting on, and fat enough to hold those stitches open so you can get the needle back in later. Seriously, I really encourage you to give it a try. This was my first try with DPNs and it came out really good! Go for it! Woohoo! (Can you tell I love the mittens?) Be bold!
