Most beginning knitters have tackled a project knitted in the round - a hat or cowl done on a circular needle, and perhaps some double point needles for the top of the hat.  However, there are 4 different ways to knit in the round, and some may be your cup of tea and some...not so much. Come explore all 4 types of knitting in the round while we make a simple ribbed chunky beanie. We will use one short circular to begin, knit using magic loop on a larger circular needle, switch to knitting with two circulars and finish with double point needles.  There will be tons of tips and tricks for each method, and you can find out what works best for you!

What you will learn: knitting in the round using 4 methods (circular needles, magic loop, 2-circulars, double point needles)
