This Class Will Not Be Recorded 

Patty digs deep into her bag of tricks to show you some of her favorite circular knitting hacks. Patty has some truly unique UNventions that will make your circular knitting sing. Learn how to make a completely jog-free cast-on and bind-off, as well as some truly magical jogless joins, including Patty’s closed-ring single stripe. There will be tips to avoid ladders from dpns and the weird tight stitch at the magic loop turn and so much more. We’ll even learn a trick for jogless Fair Isle! Finally, Patty will introduce you a faster way to swatch in the round, AND (extra credit, if time allows), even tricks to working W&T and German short rows in the round without the icky hole. Get ready to kick your circular knitting up to the next level.
