    Aspyn Beanie pattern questions

    Hi. I am on the start of round 8 of a decrease round for the crown and I was wondering if the purl sts in this round is suppose to match the purl sts from the previous rounds after decreasing until 96 sts(24 sts on each 4 dpns)?

    The link is here for the pattern.
    Ravelry: Aspyn pattern by Melissa Schaschwary

    This is what it says in round 8:
    The Decrease Round 8 says this: [k2tog,ssk,p1,ssk,ssk,k2,k2tog,k2tog,p1] to end.60 sts

    Also,Decrease Round 6 says this:[k4,p1,(ssk,k1)2x,k3,k2tog,k1,k2tog,p1] to end.96 sts.
    Before the decrease rounds it was 1/1 rc,1/1lc,p1,k14,p1,to end.

    It had 120 sts on the circular needles before using the 4 dpns

    Then after that round it was a decrease round reducing the sts down until 96 using 4 dpns.
    After this round 8 (which I need help with now),it gets reduced to 60 sts on 4 dpns.

    What do you think I should do?

    I myself don't like dpns. I have 4 dpns but I don't use them. I normally don't knit although I can knit. When a pattern calls for dpns I don't use them I use 2 straight knitting needles instead. I believe I asked someone a while back about how to use the dpns and the person said she didn't think it mattered much that I could just use the 2 straight knitting needles.
