with Stefanie Japel
Knit Lab: In the Round
Make four exclusive accessories while learning to knit in the round with double-pointed needles, one short circular needle, two circular needles and the magic loop method.

Cast on with knitwear natural Stefanie Japel and master circular knitting skills as you make a headband, a hat with colorwork, a pair of fingerless mitts, and even a cable and lace cowl! First, knit a headband in the round using double-pointed needles, as well as a flower that makes a lovely accent. Then, Stefanie will teach you to use the magic loop method to knit a shaped hat with colorwork, while giving you tips for managing yarn in both hands. You'll even learn to knit a pair of fingerless mitts at the same time using two circular needles. For your final project, Stefanie will take you step-by-step through a breathtaking cable and lace cowl that uses the easiest technique you'll learn in class.

Lesson plan

23:21

Lesson 1. About Circular Knitting

  • Learn about the advantages of knitting in the round, review the tools and get started making a trendy headband.

11:33

Lesson 2. Making the Headband Flower

  • Cast on a small number of stitches on double-pointed needles and expand your knitting in a circle to make decorative flowers.

29:30

Lesson 3. Making a Hat With Magic Loop

  • You don't need to limit yourself to a short circular needle when making smaller projects. Cast on for a hat using this clever technique.

Lesson 4. Completing the Hat

  • Simple colorwork is easy in the round! Add contrasting triangles to your hat, then see how to decrease for the crown and finish the top.

20:45

Lesson 5. Making Two Gloves at Once

  • Are you good at starting projects but slow to finish them? Knitting two fingerless gloves on two needles at the same time guarantees you won't have a lonely, single mitt.

Lesson 6. Completing the Gloves

  • Add shaping for the thumb and knit up the rest of the mitt, then finish the thumb for a fun, unisex accessory that's easy to customize.

Lesson 7. Cabled Lace Cowl

  • This stunning accessory includes simple lace and cables. Written instructions are included, or you can try reading the chart. It's easier than you might think!

"While I already learned circular knitting on DPN's, magic loop, and using 2 circs, this class greatly enhanced my technique. Plus I really wanted the patterns to go with the class. I enjoyed Stefanie's teaching methods and found she explained each step clearly. If you need to see a step multiple times, hit the 30-second repeat button. No need to have a teacher repeat herself 5 times. Great class, great teacher, great techniques, and great patterns to experiment with."
