How to Join in the Round for Circular Knitting
The process of casting on is the same with circular needles as it is with straight needles. What does that mean, and how do you do it? It's actually very easy but you do need to pay attention because it is also easy to get a twist in your knitting. The first key is that you need to look at all the stitches you've cast on and make sure they're all oriented the same way on the needle. That means all the little loopy bits from casting on the stitches should be on the inside of the circle made by the circular needle, without twisting the edge.
Circular knitting needles feature 2 knitting needles that are connected by a cable. You can knit in the round with circular needles, which makes them ideal for sweaters, hats, and sleeves. You can also knit flat on circular needles by working back and forth across the stitches on the central cable, which is great for making blankets, scarves, and shawls. Finish your project by decreasing, casting off, or doing combination of the 2. To knit on circular needles, start by making a slipknot on your right-hand needle and casting on stitches like you normally would according to your pattern's instructions. Next, turn your knitting project so that the working yarn is on your right and place a stitch marker between the first and last stitch so you can keep track of your place.
