December 13th Learn to knit 2 at a time on 2 Circular needles


Class Name: Learn to Knit 2 at a time on 2 Circular needles

Class Date: Thursday December 13th

Class Hours: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Instructor: Terry King

Class Cost: $35

Skill Level: Experienced beginner to advanced

Class Description: Learn to knit two items at the same time using the 2 circular needle technique. This technique is an alternative to using double pointed needle for small diameter projects such as mittens/mitts, socks, tops of hats, and sleeves. It works much the same as magic loop but can be easier to manage once you learn it and get the rhythm of it. You can work one item at a time or two which is very handy for making sure both items have the same number of rounds and for foregoing second sock syndrome.

Material Needed:

  • Pattern of your choice for socks or mitts. I suggest that it be simple for this first time.
  • Materials called for in your chosen pattern. Yarn will need to be wound into two balls.
  • You will want 1 – 16” circular and 1 – 24” circular needle in the size called for in your pattern. (I highly recommend using these lengths specifically. Longer lengths get in the way and 2 of the same length is confusing)
  • Point protectors
  • Locking stitch markers

Skills you should have: You must know the basics of knitting and have worked at least one project in the round.

Skills you will learn: You will learn how to cast on and knit 2 items at the same time with 2 circular needles, while managing 2 balls of yarn.

Homework: Please purchase pattern and all materials before class time. If you have questions or need help choosing a pattern for your skill level please contact me.
