eBook Review: Knitting in the Round on Magic Loop by Liat Gat

“So you all know that I LURVE me some video tutorials. I’m a see-it-to-learn-it kinda gal. Well Liat Gat, author of the popular blog, KNITFreedom, has created an amazing series of PDF and video tutorial books. A knitting instructor, Gat found herself frustrated with not being able to show all of her students the angle in which was best to learn the technique. So one day, she decided she would teach online with video tutorials, so every student could see exactly what she was trying to showing them. She added a PDF guide and created a multi-media book which both explains the technique while demonstrating it. Ingenius!

Knitting in the Round on Magic Loop is a comprehensive self-guided course disguised as an eBook. Easy to see demonstrations and clear, concise written instruction take you from beginning (casting on) to finished project in no time. Gat also anticipates common beginner mistakes and provides several troubleshooting demonstrations. She’s really thought of the technique from an instructor’s point of view: the big picture.

So if you’ve been wanting to learn to knit small diameter projects in the round using only ONE set of circular needles, but have been intimidated, than this book is for you! When I learned magic loop knitting, there weren’t many tutorials out there. I was fortunate to solicit help from a fellow knitter. But most of the knitters I knew were still using DPNs. I knit countless wanna-be socks and bit my lip many a-nights trying to figure out where I went wrong. Once I learned it, it was simple. But it was trial and error or beg the one knitter I knew who knit in magic loop to sit with me and explain my mistakes. You won’t have to go through any of that with this eBook. You’ll be whipping up a a tube by the END of the book.”

  1. Well Karrie is quite right! It IS a wonderful course – it’s the first one I’ve done and I am sold on the concept! It’s like having a teacher sit beside you, it’s funny and friendly and most importantly in one afternoon I’ve mastered a technique that’s been frustrating me for ages! I’m now off to my LYS to buy the right size needles for the sock I want to knit – singular – I knitted the first one on dpn’s and it fell victim to second sock syndrome.
    I can’t decide if my next topic will be “2 socks at a time”or”speed up your knitting”- either way it’s great value and I wish you all the success in the world Liat.

    1. Wow, Fiona, thank you! Woo hoo! This makes me so happy! YOU are the reason I make these videos.

      For your next course, if you have more than 4 projects going right now, do the “Knit Faster” e-book, because you’ll be able to apply the tips to your current projects. If you have just a couple projects, do the two-at-a-time toe-up socks e-book, because it only takes one skein of worsted and it is SO fun.

      Thanks so much for your kind words!!
