i have knit just a few things in the round. i recently bought "socks that soar...", and her joining technique is wonderful!
1. co your stitches on needle
2. bring stitches all the way across your circular needles (or evenly split on your double pointed needles)
3. take the first stitch of your cast-on (the one with the tail hanging) and slip it onto the other needle (you have a circle of stitches now)
4. take the LAST stitch (it is now next to your first co stitch) and slip it OVER the intitial slipped stitch.
you now have a ring of stitches and a nice tight join. :cheering:
