I’m learning to knit in the round with the magic loop. DPN’s just didn’t go well for me. :lol:
I feel like a whole new world has opened up to me! All of those gorgeous patterns I was bypassing because they called for knitting in the round, I’ll be able to do!
But before I start on anything besides my practice tube, I have a few questions…
When knitting something like a hat, where you start on a circular needle and then move to DPN’s as it decreases at the top, can I just use the same circular I’ve been knitting it with and magic loop the top instead of moving it to the DPN’s?
When knitting in the round, do I need to be aware of stitches twisting throughout the whole project, or am I okay after the first round?
When a pattern calls for DPN’s…ie: “CO 60 stitches and move evenly to 4 DPN’s…”, when I use the magic loop, do I just ignore that and CO my 60 stitches and split them evenly between the two points like normal? I mean, it doesn’t matter where the stitches are as long as I’m knitting them round, right?
I think that’s all my questions for now. I’m sure I’ll have many more as I start new projects!
Thanks for the help!
