How To Knit In The Round

Circular needles are exactly what they sound like; they allow a knitter to knit in a circle and are useful for knitting hats and cowls.

Knitting with circular needles is not exactly the same as using straight needles, some people get confused with how to join the knitting.

  • You need to join the working yarn in the work so it is one continuous circle.
  • Hold the needle where the cast on began in your left hand and hold the other needle in your right hand.
  • Begin knitting with the working yarn, making sure you are connecting the yarn to the beginning and creating a circle.

Take a look at the video and see exactly how to do it.
