Class Overview

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!
