Publisher Comments:

More knitters than ever are using circular needles and enjoying the convenience, ease, and efficiency of knitting in the round. Circular Knitting Workshop teaches every aspect of circular knitting, and it empowers knitters of all levels to discover the satisfaction of knitting in the round.

Circular knitting has many benefits, including making it easier to follow charts (with the right-side of the work always facing the knitter) and eliminating the need for seams.

Margaret Radcliffe, author of The Knitting Answer Book (165,000 copies in print), is a master teacher. She presents Fair Isle, twined, helix, tubular, and other classic techniques in detailed step-by-step photographic sequences. Thirty-five demonstration projects let readers try out each new technique on a mini-version of a sock, hat, bag, mitten, sweater, or vest before applying it to a larger project. Radcliffe also shows readers how to convert patterns written for straight needles to circular.

Whether they're looking for a quick answer to a specific problem or a complete course in knitting in the round, knitters of all levels and interests will find Circular Knitting Workshop to be just what they need.

Synopsis:

Round out your knitting skills

Circular knitting is efficient, convenient, and fascinating to learn with Margaret Radcliffe's detailed, step-by-step instructions. A master teacher with a knack for demystifying complex techniques, Radcliffe uses 35 mini sample projects to demonstrate classic techniques such as lace and stranding knit in the round, as well as helix knitting, invisible joins, and ideal cast ons for all your circular knitting. From adapting flat patterns to circular and converting bottom-up projects to top-down, here is everything you need to know to master knitting in the round.

Circular knitting is just so practical and much easier than using DPN. Circular needles can be used for non-circular projects, with the added bonus: your work doesn't fall off the needles! This is a great reference for applying circular technique to all sorts of knitting.
