A Better Method
"I have never done Magic Loop prior to finding this. I attempted 1 pair of socks on 3 DPNs and was not happy with either the process or the result. (I hated dealing with all those needles!) I purchased this Top-Down Socks class in the hopes of finding a better method and I wasn't disappointed.
Your videos and instructions were so clear and easy to follow that I have now completed my first pair on ML and I'm hooked! (No pun intended). Haven't tried 2 at a time yet, but that's next up for me. I can see that now I'm going to have to purchase your knitting superstar book :-)"

What Is Knitting in the Round on Magic Loop?
The Magic Loop is not a knitting tool that you buy - it's a way of knitting that you learn. Using a 40- to 47-inch-long circular knitting needle, you can knit circular pieces of any size - from the body of a sweater to the finger of a glove, with no laddering, stretched-out stitches, or dropped or lost double-pointed needles.
It's the elegant and easy way to knit in the round. Once you learn Magic Loop knitting with this class, you can then move on to my other classes where you can learn to knit two-at-a-time: mittens, socks, sweater sleeves - your projects come out exactly the same, you finish both items at the same time, and you are happy and proud. But to get you started, you first need to learn Magic Loop.

What KnitFreedom Students Say About This Magic Loop Knitting Class:
Your instructions have FINALLY allowed me to knit in Magic Loop. So many other websites were confusing in their terminology of top vs bottom needles. Your rate of speech is so calming as well. You are a very good teacher who has given me the confidence to begin my first project of fingerless mitts with thumbs via the Magic Loop!
– Marga H.
I purchased your magic loop video package and it was a complete lifesaver! You have been beyond helpful so far and have made getting back into knitting (without my grandma to teach me anymore) so much less daunting!
– Kathryn B.
After about six or more tries with different YouTube teachers, and still not getting it at all, I happened to watch your Magic Loop video. And it was so easy! Listening to you and watching your hands, I was able to figure it out and actually do it!
– Candace B.
Thanks to your detailed magic loop instructions, I am smoothly sailing along without messing up and not knowing why.
– Nancy R.
Liat, THANK YOU for the classes on Magic Loop and Toe-Up, Two-at-a-Time socks. I'm knitting the gussets of my socks now, and so far the knitting has been a breeze! I practiced the Magic Loop as instructed in your videos, then braved the toe-up socks class. It took several tries just to knit the first row after casting on. Judy's Magic Cast-on was a breeze, but keeping that last stitch on, even after twisting the tail around the working yarn, was a lesson in extreme patience!; but once I got it, I was off & knitting!
I started my first toe-up socks yesterday midday and just couldn't put them down, I was thrilled that I'd learned something so unexpectedly special.
Thank you for teaching this old puppy new tricks!
– Leila S.
I want knitters who have given up on learning Magic Loop to know that your video is by far the best. I was almost ready to give it up myself when I found your video and immediately grasped the concept and have not looked back. Anyone who truly wants to learn Magic Loop only needs to follow your few steps. Thank you for your clear and precise instructions!
– Joan K.

Excellent. Very clear demonstration of Magic Loop. I got it right away. Thanks a million.
I just purchased your magic loop ebook… sooo helpful! you are a hoot! I am awaiting my online order of suggested needles and am looking forward to knitting all the patterns I’ve been saving up (and avoiding due to instructions using dpn’s!) Many thanks for your enthusiasm (and being a great teacher)!
Dear Liat, I wanted to take this little moment to thank you for your tutorials on YouTube. I have just discovered your videos and subsequently just signed up to learn more about knitting the Liat Way. I'm a very novice knitter, even though I have been poking away at knitting for a long time.
I recently "got a bee in my bonnet" about wanting to knit in the round... why not?... and in the process of learning about the different ways you can do that I discovered the Magic Loop trick.
After about six or more tries with different YouTube teachers, and still not getting it at all, I happened to watch your Magic Loop video. And it was so easy! Listening to you and watching your hands! I was able to figure it out and actually do it!
I am really excited to think that now I might be able to add to my ever growing pile of (fabulous) long knitted rectangles with some circular things for a change. (Ahem...) Cables and color work... who knows... the list goes on... It's great.
Thank you so much for your teacher's heart and your wonderful website and tutorials. I am hooked. Or maybe, I should say, "I'm knit!"

About This Class
This video class was developed based on my live, in-person Magic Loop classes that I taught at Stix Yarn in Bozeman, MT, and Blazing Needles in Salt Lake City, UT. These popular classes were regularly sold out, as every student walked away with a great understanding of how to knit in the round on Magic Loop easily and skillfully.
- A long circular needle, at least 32" (80 cm) long. Recommended: US Size 7 or other medium-sized needle. A good length for most projects is 40-47".
- Waste yarn for practicing. Recommended: worsted-weight yarn.
