I have finally finished my first DPN project and it is actually my first dpn pattern as well. I am taking advantage of feeling good to show you the hat. Until now I have been afraid of DPNs, until I made this hat. I can say that making hats with DPNs is a science in itself. I can not compare circular knitting, or flat knitting with dpn knitting, it is a different experience. I say it is a matter of choice. In the meantime thanks for allowing me to share this with you.
