KNITFreedom - How To Knit Garter Stitch In The Round Without Purling

When you knit garter stitch in the round, you normally need to alternate between knit and purl rounds.

I use a special trick called the wrap-and-turn so that I don’t ever have to purl when I do garter stitch in the round. Here’s how to do it.


The secret is to do a wrap-and-turn on the first stitch of every round, then go back the other way, knitting, of course. This is also great practice for advancing your basic Magic Loop skills.
