Good first Circ project

I just wanted some input…

I am a beginner… I want to learn to use circ needles… what would be a good first project?

thanks so much for the help!

How about a basic hat? Check out the free patterns page on this site and look for a beginner/intermediate one. You’ll have to use double pointed needles when you get to the top of the hat, but once you get the circulars down, dpns aren’t bad!

Good luck! :smiley:

This was my first circ project. As long as you can knit ( no purling :cheering:)you can do it. Have fun and Good Luck :thumbsup:

I made Meema’s Felted Tote from Stitch N Bitch. It wasn’t too hard and the felting hid all boo-boos. And speaking of ‘boo’, the Booga Bagmight be a good first circular project.


I’m making my maiden circular knitting voyage, too! I’m working on the Quaker Ribbed Bottom Hat, which is on the Free Patterns - Hats page of this site. You don’t even need to use DPNs on this pattern!! (That’s why I picked it!)
