If you have some thinner, more dense needles, use two pairs of pliers (best with pads or add padding) and bend around the rolling pin.

Use one pair of pliers to hold and the other to do the bending.

You can also use a rubber hammer to smooth it out.

are knitting needles a hollow tube?

Some are. The blue ones I use in my instructable are hollow, the purple ones I use are not. For non hollow I have included a second method in step 5.
