Circular From the Inside Out with Beth Whiteside
Used to working in the round from the outside in, decreasing your way to the center? Learn how to work the other way, starting at the center and increasing out: no more running out of yarn before you hit the middle! Working on double-pointed needles, try different ways of starting in the center while knitting up a cute coaster or two. We’ll talk about increase types, and placement options for both design (spokes, spirals and concentric circles) and construction (flat circular shawl, dome-shaped hat, hexagonal afghan block) purposes.
