Can I change from knitting on 3 double pointed needle to a circular needle. My circular needle is too long to begin to knit a cuff on the leg of a onesie. Could I change to circular once I start to increase the leg. Thank you Bonnie

sure; I do it all the time. Here are some videos showing how to switch..... going either way.

If your circular is long enough and has a flexible cable, you can use Magic Loop instead of dpns, even for the smallest items. I don't own any dpns, I do all my knitting on circulars.

Your tension might be off some, more so if you change to/from bamboo to/from metal. Just knit onto your circular off of your dpn's.
