Why Knit in the Round?

Do you know how to knit and purl but you’re intimidated by the thought of knitting in the round?  Perhaps you’re not even sure WHY you’d WANT to knit in the round!   Wait no longer and wonder no more.

When you knit in the round you’re always working on the RIGHT side of the garment, which means that you generally purl less and knit more.   You’ll find that you’re knitting even faster, and there are fewer (or no) seams for you to sew.

When you knit sweaters and dresses in the round, you can easily customize the pattern so you get the perfect fit.   AND it’s awesome to watch your garment grow!

After you knit up 1 of these hats, you’ll be able to knit sweaters, cowls, leggings and all sorts of things in the round.  You may never go back to straight knitting!!

By the way, check out http://www.cascadeyarns.com/patterns_KnittedKidsHats.htm for some fabulous childrens’ hats.  And go to www.lionbrand.com for all kinds of well-written patterns!  Both sites offer most patterns at no cost.

Cost is $60 plus materials.  Of course the materials will depend on which hat you choose so we’ll figure it out when you register.
