Class: Magic Loop
Magic loop is a method of knitting in the round which will change your knitting life forever (cue dramatic lights and echo-o-o). But seriously, magic loop is a great essential skill that will rock your knitting world. While double pointed needles are an effective way to work on smaller circumference projects - think sleeves, hat crowns, socks, etc. - they can feel finicky and difficult to work with. The alternative magic loop method uses a long circular needle to knit in the round, allowing you to knit a variety of circumferences without having to switch needles or cord lengths. Ethan will walk you through the basics of magic loop and show you tips and tricks which will solidify your love for the technique.
This class is great for everyone from beginners to experts.
