Circular Knitting Workshop

Rating
More knitters than ever are using circular needles and enjoying the convenience, ease, and efficiency of knitting in the round. "Circular Knitting Workshop" teaches every aspect of circular knitting, and it empowers knitters of all levels to discover the satisfaction of knitting in the round. Circular knitting has many benefits, including making it easier to follow charts (with the right-side of the work always facing the knitter) and eliminating the need for seams. Margaret Radcliffe, author of "The Knitting Answer Book", is a master teacher. She presents Fair Isle, twined, helix, tubular, and other classic techniques in detailed step-by-step photographic sequences. Thirty-five demonstration projects let readers try out each new technique on a mini-version of a sock, hat, bag, mitten, sweater, or vest before applying it to a larger project. Radcliffe also shows readers how to convert patterns written for straight needles to circular.
