Free Technique Monday: Knitting in the Round with Double Pointed Needles

Learn how to knit in the round using double-pointed needles from knitting pro Debbie Stoller. Like Debbie says, “knitting with double-pointed needles is like wrestling with an octopus” — while it can look intimidating, it’s really not as hard as it seems. Debbie shares her technique for easily casting on, joining in the round without twisting, and fearlessly working from one needle to the next. In no time, you’ll be creating hats, socks, and lots of other tube-like circular knits.
