Twice the Fun, Half the Work with Patty Lyons
Learn the fun and time-saving technique of working any two items, in the round, two at a time! Whether socks, sleeves, or wristers, getting both pieces done at once means you’ll never suffer from “second item syndrome” again! First, we will go over the basics of working magic loop and two circulars. Then we’ll move on to the secrets of how to cast on and work two items for both magic loop and two circulars. We’ll also go over professional tips for improving the look of your work in the round.
Note: Must know long-tail cast-on and how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off. Familiarity with Magic Loop required. To practice please review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdSpc0EZpnk
