If you are having trouble getting started... go ahead and cast on all your stitches on a straight or circular needle... knit four rows or so in pattern (ribbing etc) and then knit over onto your dpns... that little inch of material will really hold stuff together while you get a hang of it- and you can divide your stitches onto the needles as you like- and you can even stagger it so that the split (where the circle is joined) falls at the middle of one DPN instead of at the gap between two- that will help you to bridge that gap. When you are done with you knitting you can sew a tiny seam- no one will know the difference- and I bet you won't need to use this trick ever again.
