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!
NOTE: If you’d like to purchase only the DVD for this class, you may do so through this link. (Please note, any class PDF materials are not on the DVD itself. You must have streaming access to download those materials associated with the class.)

Magic Loop for an Open Start (38:47)
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.
Magic Loop for a Closed Start (18:26)
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.
Magic Loop Two at a Time (24:23)
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!
