The Magic Loop Method, Two Circulars, or Double-Pointed Needles- Which is Right for You?

$20        with Daniel Yuhas

When knitting tubular things like socks, sleeves, or hats, or when you’re knitting from the center out, you can knit seamlessly in circles or “in the round.” But how? Just like the hotly debated difference between “picking” and “throwing” your knitting, you’ve probably heard your fellow knitters sing the praises of the Magic Loop method or the Two Circulars technique. And don’t forget good old double-pointed needles! All three of these methods are great tricks learn, so in this two-hour crash course, we’ll try out all three methods and figure out which one you like the best.

Date/Time: Monday, April 22; 6-8 pm

Materials – either bring your own or before/during class get 20% off on: What we practice on in class can be finished into a pair of mittens or fingerless mitts. Bring 200 yards of worsted weight yarn (I love Malabrigo Worsted or Brown Sheep Lanaloft for learning, but use whatever you like), and the following needles, all in size 8 or 9: one set of 4 or 5 double-pointed needles between 6 and 8 inches long; one circular needle at least 32″ long, and a second circular needle at least 24″ long.
