Round Up! 4 Ways to Knit in the Round with Beth Whiteside
Circle the wagons! Explore ways to knit round and round, from the standard circular and double-pointed needles to the revolutionary 2-circulars and Magic Loop methods. We'll practice each technique while working a neckwarmer; when class is over you can use your favorite method to work the matching fingerless mitts at home! We'll also touch on joining tips, converting directions from flat to circular and working stitch patterns in the round.
