I’m relatively new to the Magic Loop method … I’ve only used it for a couple of smaller projects so far but have been happy with the results.
I’m fairly certain that I’m following the instructional video on this site properly, but when I’m knitting using the Magic Loop method the RS of the work in on the inside of the “tube” of knitting. So essentially I’m knitting the project inside out. This hasn’t bothered me so far, as so far I’ve used stitch patterns that are reversible (ie. they look the same on the RS and the WS), and I just turn the knitting right side out when finished.
I understand [I]why[/I] my work is inside out (because the “tube” of knitting is between myself and the needle that I am knitting off of), but I can not for the life of me figure out how to change this! I’m starting to wonder whether this is how Magic Loop is supposed to be done or whether I’m just having a total mental block as to how to position my needles correctly!
My question is this: is there a way to use the Magic Loop method of circular knitting and have the RS of the work facing out?
Any insights would be appreciated!
