Question about Magic Loop
When you use Magic Loop, can you use patterns other than St st? How would you do this? I've read oodles of posts of knitters on this site who LOVE ML! I watched the video and think I may want to try this. Any suggestions, tips, or ML patterns you can share with a newbie would be terrific! Thanks in advance!

Definitely -- Magic Loop isn't tied (so to speak, heh) to any particular stitch. It's just a method of knitting in the round. You can do any stitch you want -- it works the same way that knitting a larger-diameter thing normally on a circular needle would, or knitting on double-pointed needles.

Also, you will be hard pressed to actually find many patterns written specifically for magic loop. It is a method, not an entity unto itself - it can be used in place of dpns in any pattern. I use magic loop only for small diameter circular knitting and I've never run into a pattern that I've had trouble with because of using a different method.
