Think of cir­cu­lar knit­ting as cre­at­ing a sculp­tural work of art that morphs and changes as the cre­ation springs to life.

Creative Knitting - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

Un­like a static gar­ment made back and forth that must be sewn to­gether be­fore wear­ing, cir­cu­lar knit­ting is much more for­giv­ing. The prac­ti­cal na­ture of knit­ting in the round al­lows us to test and make ad­just­ments on the fly.

In this Spe­cial In­ter­est edi­tion of Cre­ative Knit­ting mag­a­zine, we’ll give you the es­sen­tial tools to get started on your cir­cu­lar knit­ting jour­ney.

If you’re a new or ex­pe­ri­enced knit­ter, this is­sue has some­thing for you, no mat­ter what phase of the process you’ve mastered. There’s al­ways some­thing new to learn when it comes to cir­cu­lar knit­ting, and you’ll find this book to be a con­stant com­pan­ion.

The first chap­ter, Mas­ter the Tube, is all about get­ting in your cir­cu­lar knit­ting groove with a collection of cowls. It’s ob­vi­ous why so many knit­ters en­joy knit­ting in the round rather than back and forth. There’s no abrupt stop­ping and turn­ing, just con­tin­u­ous rhyth­mic feel-good move­ments!

In Cir­cu­lar Satchels, you’ll find clev­erly con­structed bags and col­or­ful totes that en­cour­age you to ex­plore cir­cu­lar con­struc­tion meth­ods on a small scale.

If mak­ing a cap suits your fancy, then you’ll be pleased with our Hat Mak­ing 101 les­son in Heads Up!. The top­per is a prac­ti­cal ba­sic that you’ll want to make no mat­ter your level of knit­ting ex­per­tise.

If you’re ready to get se­ri­ous about your craft, then it’s time to roll up your sleeves with Prac­ti­cal Pullovers. Cir­cu­lar knit­ting in this way, cre­ates a series of seam­less tubes that be­come your fi­nal gar­ment that you can eas­ily try on as it be­gins to emerge on your nee­dle!

With Ca­sual Cardi­gans, you’ll en­joy the ease of work­ing a gar­ment on one cir­cu­lar nee­dle. These projects are made back and forth, but with just one cir­cu­lar nee­dle, you can eas­ily man­age the body of your gar­ment. You’ll also pre­fer us­ing a cir­cu­lar nee­dle for all of your back and forth projects for ease and comfort.

I know this Spe­cial In­ter­est is­sue will be a com­pan­ion that will re­main by your side on your cir­cu­lar knit­ting jour­ney for years to come!
