So, there's no such thing as a stupid question, right??<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br>
I'm knitting the LTK bucket hat and am about to start the top, so I'm in the home stretch! The directions say to switch to DPN's (I've never used them before) when necessary. How will I know when to switch? A certain number of stitches remains? It just gets more and more difficult to stretch the stitches around the circular needle? A buzzer sounds?<br>
Thanks so much for any help!!<br>

Generally though it's when it's comfy for you. I change when they are stretched tight on the circ. If I remember too I'll change before I get there though due to how tight I knit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks! So, if I understand correctly, it's never too early to switch to the DPN's, right?

Nope . . . in fact, you could knit exclusively on dpn's if you were so inclined.
