I am going to knit the Cardigan Bay Jacket from the Fall 2011Interweave Knits mag. It calls for a Size 15 40" circular and a set of double-pointed. My question: are the dpns alsosupposed to be a size 15? it is not clear to me. Also, where can I buy them? i have been a knitter for a couple years so consider myself an intermediate, but this had me stumped. Please help!

Probably the dpns are size 15 also. Read through the pattern and look for the switch to dpns and see if you can tell.

You can buy them at:

Thank you! At  your suggestion I did look at the pattern and it seems that the stitches are just divided to work the arms with the dpns and the stitch pattern does not change. I will go with the 15s! Thanks for the  help and and "pointing" me in the direction of where to purchase the dpns Smile Very much appreciated -- happy Knitting!

Clover has a 25% off sale going on.  Also Michael's Craft Stores.
