Magic Loop and Two Circular Needle Alternative
June 2, 2018
Marji LaFreniere is back to teach us two alternatives to standard double-pointed knitting! We will work on a swatch, casting on and learning the Magic Loop. Then we will start another swatch using the Two-Circular method. We will discuss tips for the most successful use of both techniques, and suggestions for modifying any standard sock pattern to either technique. Handouts will be provided illustrating each technique.
MATERIALS NEEDED: yarn and two circular needles in size to go with your yarn. (Fingering: #2, Sport: #4-5, Worsted: #7-8.) One circular needle should be at least 32″ long, the other can be any length.
Directions to the meeting can be found here.
