If you would like to switch to another method of knitting in the round after the cast on, bring your other needles (i.e. double pointed needles or 9" circular needle). The cast on and first few rounds must be done magic loop; then you can switch if you like. Also bring tapestry needles, stitch markers, and any other knitting notions you like. Skills Required: Knit, purl, ssk, k2tog, p2tog, bind off, and most importantly must know how to use the magic loop method of working in the round; we will not be teaching this method in class.
