Grab your circular needles and learn the basic skills needed to open up your knitting to cowls, headbands, socks, gloves and more. Knitwear designer Pam Powers guides you through the steps to take circular projects from start to finish, and helps build foundational skills you can transfer to future work.
Meet Pam Powers and begin by learning the pros and cons of the most popular needles for working in the round. You'll see what's it's like to use both one and two circular needles, magic loop needles, and double pointed needles (DPNs).
Start knitting with a simple cast-on using one circular needle, and then see how to compare it with other needle setups. Next, find out how to join your work and tell which is the wrong or right side.
Take a look at knitting and purling in the same round, learn about making and measuring a gauge swatch, and discover how measuring your gauge changes when working in the round.
