Well, I think I've discovered the secret..
I switched from dpn to 2 circulars as explained here at KnittigHelp.com and it works! I completed the first pattern part of my scarf last night, and started the hat again until I could get the additional #3 needle I needed to continue.
The other thing I learned is the idea of "loose while firm" knitting - keeping the fabric on the active needle spaced out in order to carry the threads, but keeping the stitches ON the needles the correct tension...
Anyway, I'm now moving forward!
