How to Knit the Magic Loop Method

Helllooo!! Are you ready to start knitting in the round?

I’m here to show you my favorite method for doing so: The Magic Loop Method!

You can use this to knit socks and sweaters, sleeves and collars, cowls, hats, mittens, etc. Anything that is in the round.

You’ll need:

1 long circular needle (about 32″-40″)

I am using a skein of my Pearlescent Worsted weight yarn in colorway Laguna.

It’s soft and shimmering and a mix of superwash merino wool and silk. It’s hand-dyed by our lovely team of dyers and this yarn base really takes the dye so well. It just radiates!

Have a watch to learn this awesome method:

It might seem fiddly at first, but don’t lose hope. Just keep practicing and practicing and you will be working the magic loop method in no time flat! You can DOOOO it!

I believe in you!

Now get those needles and some lovely yarn and give it a whirl.

See ya next time!

Be sure to sign up to our HUGE yarn giveaway here before you leave.


Bye now!

    What great video! Thanks for sharing your method. In the video you asked us to post any questions or requests for videos in the comments… I have been desperately trying to crochet up the Flutterby Barefoot Sandals and I keep getting caught up by row 4. 🙁 I am not sure what I am doing wrong. It is so frustrating as the pattern seems easy enough and I have been crocheting for over 10 years. Would you be willing to do a tutorial video on it?

    Never tried this method before. You make it look so easy. Thanks for another great instructional video showing close ups and explaining every step. You are an amazing teacher.

    Beautiful yarn.

    I hope this is where I am supposed to comment for the give away.

    I was taught to crochet by my grandmother when I was a child. I was first taught to knit by a neighbor as a young girl, the English method. Then as a young adult and new mom another neighbor taught me to knit Continental and I’ve been using this method ever since! Except if course if I’m doing fair isle I use both hands and techniques as my great teacher taught me.

    I pinned this twice on a Pinterest but can’t find a URL.

    Win or lose this is a great site.

    Thank you!! Looking forward to more great tutorials!!

    I picked up my first pair of knitting needles this past week thanks to you and your videos. I’ve always been afraid no terrified of knitting. I’ve been crocheting since I was a kid. But now I can say I wish I picked up knitting sooner because I’m loving it and its because I came across your tutorials.

    I have been knitting for 60 years. I learned something new here. So, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Thanks, this video is clear and professional.

    WONDERFUL instructions!! Great speed, easy to follow. Can’t wait to try this again. I had a live class at my LYS and was unsuccessful with this method. I love knitting socks. You inspired me to try this method again.

    OMG this makes soooo much more sense now! Thank you for the clear, easy-to-follow video. I definitely need to invest in some good circular needles now 🙂

    Awesome video and I knit the same way you do. I live in the Maritimes and most people knit with the yarn on the right hand and flipping over after each stitch. Thank you.
