Meet designer Lorilee Beltman and get started as she gives the scoop on knitting in the round. Find out how magic loop has changed this age-old technique for the better!
You need circular needles to work the magic loop technique, but there's more to it than that! Get set up for success by learning about the best needle cords, lengths and needle shafts to use.
Try your hand at the magic loop by working two projects with an open start: a top-down sock and a sleeve. Lorilee helps you set up your stitches and work from the needles, plus shares tips and tricks for keeping things on track.
Once you've got the basic mechanics down, see how to use the magic loop when starting projects such as toe-up socks and mitered blocks. You'll learn how to use Judy's Magic Cast-On to start these projects as well.
Want to save money on knitting needles? Discover how as you examine two sweater patterns. You'll see that the long list of needles can be whittled down to just two if you know how to knit with magic loop.
Ready to become a magic loop master? In this final lesson, find out how to work two projects at once while magic looping. You'll never suffer from second sock (or sleeve) syndrome again!

Improve your circular knitting with the magic loop technique.

Knitting in the round has never been easier! Designer Lorilee Beltman breaks down the magic loop technique so you can knit smaller-circumference projects such as socks and sleeves using only one circular needle. Learn how to knit an entire sweater using fewer needles than the pattern calls for, and even knit projects two at a time. With Lorilee’s step-by-step guidance, you’ll be working the magic loop method like a pro and may never need your double-pointed needles again!
