Did you know that nearly all of your in-the-round knitting can be done on one long circular needle? In this web seminar, knitting instructor Lorilee Beltman will show you how.


You'll learn the maneuvers it takes to knit with the magic loop method, understand the concept behind doing so, realize where you can use it, and even save money on needles by using one long circular knitting needle for everything.


With this webinar, you'll learn:

  • What is magic loop knitting and who started it
  • What tools to use
  • Learn how to get started with an open loop, as in a hat starting at the brim, or sleeve starting at the cuff
  • Learn how to proceed in the round from the start
  • Learn the best time to check that your work is not twisted
  • Avoid ladders, or their opposite, pleats
  • Learn how to magic loop starting with a closed start, as in the center of a circular shawl, or the beginning of a toe-up sock
  • Tips for shuffling
  • How to use markers, or, how to use yarn instead of round markers when magic looping
  • Half-looping it
  • Learn how you can save substantial amounts of “needle” money by knowing how to magic loop

Disappointed in platform
The material presented was on target and helpful. With that said I was very disappointed this was a slide presentation. I would not have purchased it had I known. Pictures are great but no comparison to a video demo. Review by Mal (Posted on 9/1/2015)
Cool technique!
This webinar is very well structured. I learned a lot. But, because I also forgot a lot since the webinar, it's very nice to have its recording handy. I go back to it, when I feel unsure. I just used this technique for knitting tiny X-mas tree decorations in the round, and it worked perfectly!
I highly recommend this webinar; Lorilee Beltman is a good instructor, and I love her tone of voice.
