I have been doing alot of knitting in the round lately and have noticed that it is always inside out. It really hasn't been a problem yet. I have always just finished it and turned it right side out. But I was thinking today I wonder what I do wrong to get it inside out? I have watched Amy's video and really can't see the difference in how I do it and how she does. But there must be something I am missing. Does any one know?
I did the same thing too when I started. I had almost the exact same question, I coud not figure out why it was wrong. It was for a felted bag, so I just turned it inside out and since it was felted, it really did not make a whole lot of difference.
Naw you are not the only one!
When knitting in the round I knit with the needles away from me and on the outside. My stuff is always inside out too - I consider it a bonus.

Hey, I just thought of something! Maybe that's why I had a problem with the zig zag cable on my Hermione hat! :thinking:
Oh, I'll have to figure out how to knit right side out and see if that fixes the problem!

I knit the top of my sweaters inside out on purpose
If I'm doing a top down sweater in the round, I knit the top of my sweaters inside out on purpose and then switch to the normal way for the bust downward. This is so I can get the should/neck area even smaller, not that this actually makes a huge difference. Now that I think of it, it gets kinda hard to knit inside out once you get to a certain length...

I've been knitting in the round with the "good" side to the inside. Will it really make a difference doing it this way? I've only done a few projects in the round and will try to change, but I don't want to if there is no difference, this feels more natural to me.
