The visual way to get hooked on circular knitting

Circular knitting (also known as knitting in the round) has benefits over knitting with straight needles, including seamless finished projects, easy portability, and not having to turn your work. Many crafters are intimidated by circular knitting?but you needn’t be!

Teach Yourself VISUALLY Circular Knitting walks you step-by-step through the process of circular knitting and shows you how to make a dozen unique projects to put your newfound skills to practice.

  • Covers popular techniques including using double-pointed needles, working with one or two circular needles, and the Magic Loop, all illustrated with helpful photos
  • Patterns range from scarves and hats to sweaters and baby sets
  • Other titles by Morgan-Oakes: 2-at-a-Time Socks and Toe Up 2-at-a-Time Socks

If you’re a crafter who learns better by seeing and doing, Teach Yourself VISUALLY Circular Knitting will get you confidently knitting in the round in no time.

From the Book: Sample Sock Pattern and Complete List of Projects

Basic Socks, Kids to Adults

Socks are a lot of fun to knit and useful as well. I often hear people say that they don’t think they can knit socks because socks are “too hard.” They really aren’t. This isn’t to say that they’re easy, but if you can increase, decrease, and knit in the round, you can knit a sock!

Sock knitters everywhere know the frustration of Second Sock Syndrome. It goes something like this: A cute new sock pattern and soft, foot-warming yarn lead to many happy knitting hours, resulting in . . . ONE sock. The first sock is done (and it’s adorable!) but pattern distraction sets in. Who wants to knit the same project all over again? There are so many new projects waiting to be discovered.

Melissa Morgan-Oakes ends the drudgery of the second sock by showing knitters how to cast on and knit two socks at one time on one long circular needle! Her method is captured in step-by-step photographs, clearly showing knitters how to turn out two socks at the same time. Goodbye to lonely, abandoned single socks. Hello to unlimited pretty pairs, knit on one needle (often finished on the same day), and worn with pride and that gratifying sense of accomplishment.

Oakes is a dedicated knitter, knitwear designer, and knitting instructor who has known the frustration of Second Sock Syndrome. Her easy-to-learn technique enables sock stitchers to adapt any pattern to her two-at-a-time method. But before experimenting with other patterns, readers will want to try Morgan-Oakes’s 15 original designs. Fun and creative, they include simple to complex choices, a variety of yarn weights, and designs for women, men, and children.

Socks are small, relatively inexpensive, and interesting to knit — a favorite portable choice of busy knitters. Keep the fun in sock-stitching with the innovative new technique that produces two socks — yes, that’s one sock for each foot — at the very same time!

Consumer testimonial —

“I am a new knitter and purchased 2-at-a-time Socks. Perfect! This is a book is the best investment I’ve ever made! I have a lovely pair of socks … for the first time! Very comprehensive instructions, as well as a very easy-to-understand glossary in the back. I recommend this book to anyone interested in knitting socks. So much easier than the double pointed needles! — Deborah, Colorado Springs, CO
