I am having trouble joining the cast on stitches when starting the first round on doublepointed needles especially when using 3.75mm or less. The toy I am kmitting has only 9 stitches to start with divided to three stitches on each of three needles. Not enough stitches for a circular. The stitches seem to fall off before I can start to do the first round or I have them twisted. A small number of stitches seems to give me the most trouble. Does anyone have a suggestion. I am new to the forum and would appreciate any advice out there.
