How to Knit in the Round

  1. Begin by casting on the number of stitches that your pattern calls for as you normally would. 

  2. Make sure there are no twists in your yarn before you begin knitting in the round. 

  3. Work your first stitch by inserting your needle into the stitch as you normally would. Instead of there being a turn in your work before you work flat, you will simply knit the next stitch forming a ring. 

  4. While you continue knit be sure to count your rows and be aware of where each row starts and ends. You will continue to knit as per usual while going around and slightly upward. 

    Tip: To help you remember where each new row starts, use a stitch marker, so you can see where you are going to have to start going upward.

Fascinating! I've only every used magic loop, which is similar, but this does seem easier. No turning/managing the loop. I'll have to give this a try!
