What Is Knitting in the Round?

Knitting in the round simply means knitting a tube instead of a flat piece of fabric. The stitches go around and around in a spiral and there are no "edges."

You can also make a tube by knitting a flat piece of fabric and then sewing it up, but knitting in the round (also called "round knitting") is the easiest and fastest way to make a seamless tube.

What is Knitting in the Round Used For?

People use round knitting to make sweaters, socks, gloves, hats, mittens, arm warmers, iPod cozies, coffee-cup sleeves, finger puppets... the list goes on. Basically anything that can be made up of tubes.

Unfortunately, people don't knit in the round nearly as often as they should. This is because some patterns don't call for it, or they shy away from patterns that do call for it because they don't know how or don't feel comfortable doing it.

I am going to solve both problems for you. First, I'll teach you the easiest and fastest way to knit in the round, and then I'll show you how to knit any pattern that you want in the round. It's easier than you think.
