Workshop: Magic Loop & Beyond

Knit Stitch Sew
208 Princess Street
Kingston, Ontario
K7L 1B2

When it comes to socks, sleeves and children’s items, knitting in the round on less than 16 inches is a must. In this 2-hour workshop, learn the Magic Loop method for working in the round on one long circular needle, and get an overview of several other ways to make a small tube, from double-pointed needles, single loop, working with two or more circulars and converting in-the-round patterns for working flat. The workshop will include tips and tricks for getting the best results when working in the round, including avoiding ladders. Prerequisites: Participants should be able to knit, purl, cast on and cast off. Materials: Bring yarn (preferably Sport, DK or Worsted weight) and a circular needle (at least 32”, appropriate size for your yarn).
