Class Description: Students will learn one of the methods used to knit in the round: magic Loop, aka “traveling loop”. If you’ve never knit in the round, or find using DPN’s to be too fiddly and frustrating, this class is for you. With this method, you will be able to knit socks, mittens or sweater sleeves using a pair needles you probably already have on hand. This method is ideal if you are traveling with your knitting as well. We will also go over how to join your knitting in the round on both magic loop and short circulars to avoid common problems.
Experience: must be comfortable knitting back and forth; no experience knitting in the round is required.
Class type: hands-on instruction; this is a technique-oriented class, so no specific project is included. Photo shown is of a pair of fingerless mitts knit using the magic loop method.
