Learn knitting in the round using circular needles! Scarves are nice, but at some point you’ll want to knit hats, mittens, socks and even sweaters! What do these things have in common? They’re all 3D and tube-shaped. In order to knit things in 3D, you’ll need to knit in the round.

There are a number of ways to knit in the round, but the easiest involves knitting on circular needles. Circular needles are similar to flat needles, except that the two needles are joined together by a flexible cable that allows your stitches to curve into a round shape.


In this video, you’ll learn how to


Intro: Flat knitting vs Knitting in the round
1:11 Don’t Get it Twisted
3:18 Joining in the Round
5:56 Why Can’t I Get it Twisted?
7:28 What Needle Length to Use?


1. DON’T GET IT TWISTED! Make sure your stitches are untwisted before joining in the round or else you’ll end up with a big ole twist in your work.

2. STITCH MARKERS: stitch markers mark the beginning and end of your round. Stitch markers can be anything round and ring-like, like a rubber band or a ring that you wear on your finger. Of course, you can also purchase stitch markers like the Clover split-ring stitch markers that I use in the video: http://amzn.to/1R9tVgB

3. MINIMISE THE GAP: After joining in the round, pull tight on your first stitch so that no gap forms where you join your work together.

4. NEEDLE LENGTHS: Choose a needle length that’s smaller than the finished size of whatever it is that you’re knitting. For example, if the finished measurements of your hat is 19 inches, use a 16 inch needle).

I have been crocheting for many years and have recently picked up again. But also decided to try my hand at knitting. I already have a few projects I want to do one of them I am going to have to figure out exactly how to do. I want to knit a dog sweat for my service dog. She is a large dog with odd measurements so I can't find ones that fit her properly that are already made and we live in a very cold climate in the winter.

So the pattern I’m following calls for a 16 inch needles and 48 cast on but the stitches don’t go on to the other needle to join so am I missing something or is it just the gage?

Why didn't you demonstrate what to do when you get to the end of your first 'round' of knitting? People watch videos to SEE how to do something, not hear how its done. NOT a helpful beginner video. You've got way too much going on in this video.

hi I was so excited to find your video because finding Continental knitting in the round and for a beginner was getting kind of hard I would always find one of the criteria that I needed but I couldn't find all three in one until I found yours. So Inow I am watching and, (ARGH!).... and you didn't show how to cast on. Being a beginner I do not know how to do that SO it's back to the drawing board. I question: casting on the same for both American and Continental? ...and for flat and rin-the-ound? Of course, I don't know!!! 🤯Hopefully I can master this casting on that I'm hoping is so easy you didn't think us beginners needed to know anything about it and then I will return to start your video! 😁
I recommend editing the title taking out "beginner" or the video to include all the steps in this project...just a suggestion.

I feel like in certain patterns might include an intentional twist, might be kind of cool depending on what you are making.

Can you knit a hat with any size circular needles? I have 30" circular knitting needles and I would like to try knitting an easy hat. I have crocheted scarves and baby blankets before. I would like to broaden my knitting horizons.
