View Full Version : Suggestions for first circ needle usage?

07-16-2009, 11:32 PM
I just bought my first pair of circs. They are size 10, 29" needles... Any suggestions on a first project knitted in the round, using these? I am a bit confused about when to use different lengths and when to use DPNs, etc, but I hope to figure all of this out as I go along in my first adventure in the round...

Well, for starters, you can take some leftover yarn and just play with them. Cast on about 80-100 sts and join the 2 end sts and knit for a while. Or you can practice Magic loop - cast on 30-40 sts and play with that method of knitting. There's videos for circular knitting on the Advanced Techniques page. And they can also be used to knit flat, such as a blanket or shawl.
