Top knit tips

This project begins with a small number of stitches which can be very fiddly on dpns. If you are finding it difficult, try working the first three rows flat before joining in the round, but remember to purl the second row to keep your stocking stitch correct.

Use dpns for the first few rounds of the base then switch to a circular needle. Two dpns can be used to knit the handles.
