When learning to knit, we are taught to knit flat. But how do we make all of those fun clothing items, like beanies, sweaters, socks, and mittens? Insert circular knitting!

In this class, you will learn how to knit in the round using something called the Magic Loop technique. Learning to circular knit with this technique enables you to use a single circular knitting needle to make all different sizes of circles. We will use this technique to make a beautiful beanie to keep your head warm all winter.
