Odette is worked from the center out on dpns. You will move to the circular needle when the circumference is too large to fit comfortably on the dpns. Place a marker on the stitch indicated, not in-between the stitches. You may find it helpful to use a different (color or type) marker for the beginning of the round. The markers at the 25th, 49th and 73rd sts are located in the center of the 8 yarn overs that create the corners of the blanket.
