Class Description
Tired of knitting back and forth? Ready to move on? Expand your horizons with a variety of circular knitting techniques. Learn to knit in the round using double points, one circular, two circulars, and the Magic Loop, with I-cord and a little double knitting thrown in for good measure. You’ll be ready to make seamless sweaters, sleeves, gloves, bags, and socks (even two at a time!), and much, much more.
