I saw the video on magic loop knitting and I am keen to try it out for finishing off my hats (I hate using double pointed needles!). My question is this: how long does the cable need to be for magic loop knitting, especially to finish off a hat? In the video onthe “advanced techniques page”, I think the knitter uses a 24" cable, but said she was working on a very small piece and said that this was the smallest size needle that would work. If anyone who uses magic loop knitting to finish hats has any suggestions, please let me know!
Many thanks in advance for your help.
