If you've ever struggled with the decrease section when knitting a hat on 16-inch circular needles, you need to learn the Magic Loop method of knitting. Similarly, if you hate how sweater sleeves twist up while knitting in the round, you need to learn the magic loop technique.
Our shop owner, Kelley, recently designed the cutest dog sweater using the Magic Loop method. Here's Chloe modeling it, isn't she darling?
This magical knitting trick will save you from many of the irritating side-affects of knitting in the round. You can use Magic Loop to decrease from 90 stitches to eight stitches, on a hat for example, from cast-on to cast-off, without having to change to double-pointed needles. One long circular needle for the entire project!
Kelley demonstrates the Magic Loop method here.
We hope you'll enjoy the Magic Loop method as much as we do! It's so versatile, convenient, and super easy once you get the hang of it.
And don't forget to download the your free copy of the Finish-Free Dog Sweater, which is written for the Magic Loop technique.
