Today, we are going to talk about knitting with circular needles. Circular knitting needles come in various sizes as far as the diameter (width) of the needle, as well as the length of the needles. My favorite brand of circular needles is addi TURBO. I love how smoothly the yarn transfers from needle to needle, and the connecting wire bends more easily with the project.
There are two ways to knit with circular needles. Either way you want to use them, you will cast on the stitches as you would a straight needle.
The other way you can use circular needles is to make a tube with your knitting (like a hat), also called knit in the round. To do this, you will cast on your stitches; you will need enough stitches to reach both tips with your stitches. The final stitch will actually be on the needle in your right hand (again assuming you are right-handed and knit like me). You will knit into the first stitch that you cast on. You will continue to knit until your project has reached its required length.
I will be linking this to these link parties.
