Tip of the Week - Circular (Tubular) Knitting



If you have a ribber, you can set your machine to knit in the round and eliminate seaming tubular pieces. Yes, there are some limitations, but this technique is very useful for a number of applications.
  • What about quickly knitting hats caps without a seam?
  • Knit socks in the round
  • You can even knit the body of a plain garment to the armholes, then split the fronts and backs and knit them on the single bed.
This tutorial assumes you are familiar with setting up and knitting full needle rib. Check your manual for tubular knitting settings for your machine.
