Am I totally nuts, or does the purl stitch take more yarn than the knit stitch? Reason for my thinking: when I get ready to do the top of a chemo hat, I do one purl row, followed by decrease rows. Inevitably, it seems that at least one purl stitch per needle falls off one or the other end of the dp as they await their turn for the next row. Yet, when I return to the knit stitch, all seems to fall into place and the sts don't often jump off. Comments???

Happy summer knitting!!! Marian
