  • Knit in the round with a circular needle.
  • I knit mine using HiyaHiya interchangeable needles with 3 1/2” {9cm} tips.
  • When knitting in the round you’re always knitting the right side of your work.
  • CO loosely, making sure your stitches slide easily. Too tight of a stitch will make these difficult to knit in the round. The first couple of rounds will be a little tight, but it gets easier as you go.

  • BO in the K2, P2 pattern.
