Knitting with 5 needles

Here's is my first knitted piece with 5 needles! I thought it would be much harder, in fact it's not that bad. Basically you start by distributing the stitches by 4 needles...

... and then start to knit in loops using the 5th needle.

This way you can create a knitted cap without having to do any sowing to join it. It looks just like a tube! At the middle I started to some some decreases and, voila: a cap for my Valentine!

I've used the same basic rib pattern and did him this nice scarf to go with the cap. Ho, and I really enjoyed working with this yarn, I've used Merino + Superwash from Lang yarns.
