Tips & Techniques
There are a couple of “magic” techniques that can add so much to our knitting. In this workshop we are going to explore all the ways we can use two amazing magics: Magic Loop and Judy’s Magic Cast On. We will learn how we can work circularly making any circumference without going to double-pointed needles. You’ll be able to make sleeves, hats, socks or any small item in the round. Next we will explore the many uses of Judy’s magic cast on. Although many have heard of this cast on for a toe starter, did you also know it can be used for an amazing provisional cast on (keeping the stitches live) as well as the greatest tubular cast on ever! Come on, add a little magic to your knitting! Technique Requirements: Must know long tail cast on and how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off. Experience in one other method of working in the round helpful.
On 40" circular needle, CO 30 stitches using long-tail cast-on.
