View Full Version : Pattern for knitting in round

05-22-2007, 03:00 AM
After successfully using straight needles and double pointed needles, I bought a pair of circular needles. I want to knit something use these circular needles, but don't know what. I am thinking of a baby sweater or something, but since I am a newbie knitter I want a very simple pattern.

Can someone please suggest a simple, easy to knit item which is knit on circular needles?

It prolly depends on the length of the circular needle you bought.. if you have a 16" that is perfect for hats... for sweaters for my kids I use from a 20" to a 24" depending on their chest sizes...

My first was a sweater for my son.. I bought this pattern (http://store.nobleknits.com/annnokibatop.html)and found it very easy to do..

There are many handbag patterns too one of the most popular is the booga bag (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html)...

KPC (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory.php)has many patterns that you could look through.. you would just have to look for the ones that are knit in the round...:thumbsup:

Pure and Simple has alot of patterns for sweaters kit top down on circulars.
I just finished my first sweater which I started in March, it was a long sleeve tunic pattern from Pure and Simple. So it took me two months, but I did not knit on it everyday. And I only started knitting in February.
So I am proud of it. But there are lots of patterns out there. Good luck.
