BTW, how does one 'knit in the round' on 2 straight needles????
The most common, convenient way to knit in the round on 2 straight needles (Tubular Double Knitting):
Cast on 1/2 of the total number of sts (as in one side of a tube scarf) - place these sts in the left hand as F (front sts now)
With the working yarn and the right needle held BEHIND the left needle: *co B (1 back st), slip F - across the needle
These 2 needle passes make the cast on foundation for an open tube. You will now knit the B and slip the F in 2 needle passes for each complete round. This makes a Reverse Stockinette Stitch pattern. You may complete the tube and turn it inside out for a RS Stockinette Stitch pattern.
I like to call this "flatfold" to distinguish it from double think double knitting. The work will have a fold at each end of the needle.
