Magic Loop is the art of using one long circular needle to knit in the round. Invented by Sarah Hauschka, it is an ingenious improvement on other methods of knitting in the round like double-pointed needles. You can knit anything in the round and even do two-at-a-time knitting using Magic Loop. At KnitFreedom we specialize in teaching Magic Loop knitting.

A KnitFreedom member emailed me and asked,”What if I am starting the round with a purl stitch? I keep messing up!”

Does this sound familiar? If you knit American-style (with the yarn in your right hand), it is easy to get messed up.

The key is making sure the working yarn is underneath your right needle before you begin the stitch. Otherwise you will get an extra loop.
