Changing to Double Pointed Needles (dpns)

Transition from a circular needle to double pointed needles to accommodate decreasing stitch numbers.  Often used in the crown of a hat.

    I’m attempting your corkscrew hat and have watched your videos- v helpful but I have what I hope isn’t a stupid question. I assume I can use the magic loop instead of changing to dpns for the crown decrease? if so I take it I just divide the number of stitches in half and work as for your magic loop video?

    You can absolutely use the magic loop! Just divide the stitches in half and off you go. Happy knitting!
