Circular knitting is the preferred method used to knit most socks and hats. It is so popular that many knitters choose circular knitting for sweaters since it eliminates most seams from the garment.
A circular knitting pattern will ask you to cast on the required number of stitches and then “join in the round”. This phrase causes confusion for many first time circular knitters. The process is really quite simple and will open the door to the world of circular knitting.
I hope after watching this video that you will be tempted to try knitting in the round. (Hint – socks!)
