Knitting with Circular Needles: 10 Patterns for Practice

By: Julie DaMario, Editor fror AllFreeKnitting

If you're a beginning knitter, making the switch from straight needles to circulars can be a little daunting. However, it's important to remember the many benefits of using circular knitting needles. Knitting with circular needles allows you to hold more stitches. This is necessary when working on larger-scale projects such as knit blanket patterns or knit sweater patterns. Holding more stitches on your needles makes for a seamless product that's easier to manage.


Another benefit of knitting with circular needles is the fact that they are easier to transport than single or double point needles. Carrying your projects with you is a lot easier when they're contained to circular needles. To learn more about circular needles, check out our helpful article here.


Practice your circular knitting needle skills with the patterns below. We've selected a wide variety of styles and designs, so you're sure to find a pattern that suits your needs.
