Circular needles aren't just for knitting in the round! Anything that can be knitted on two straight needles can be knitted back and forth on circulars. On this episode of Knitting Daily TV we take a look at all things circular--from sock knitting, to circular motifs, to shaping the neck on a garment.

Getting Started


Eunny gives an in-depth tutorial on circular sock knitting, focusing on the step-by-step process for turning around a standard short-row heel. Download Eunny's secrets as well as 30 tips and tricks from this series of Knitting Daily TV.

We caught up with Cat on location for a demonstration on using her method not just for socks but for other projects like mittens and gauntlets. You could even make fun legwarmers!

Circular needles from size 0 and up are available at knitpicks.com.  The wood harmony needles are tops!  (imho)  They have fixed curcular needles and sets of needle points with cables.  Not affiliated, just a customer of theirs.
