So I started on my fingerless gloves, two-at-a-time magic loop style. I thought it would be nice to share some stuff this project has taught me.
1: Tubular Cast Ons are Awesome – Love the folded edge look. If you’ve never tried a tubular cast on, I highly recommend it. I’m going to play around with a similar method for crochet because I love the edge look so much.
2: Rotating Cords Can Be a Bad Thing – My circs have cords that rotate freely a full 360 degrees. While this is normally fantastic, it’s turning my two-at-a-time gloves into two-at-a-time knots. I think I’m going to switch over to different needles.
3: Write Down Your Pattern Stitch – I was ready to start the main pattern stitch while at my knit group. Of course I didn’t have the paper with me. I thought I remembered it, so I went ahead. Turns out I remembered wrong. Frogging time.
I’ve done the two at a time thing but only with toe up socks. Knitting like that with something tubular kinda scares me.
You think tubular cast ons are cool, look up the alternate cable cast on for 1×1 rib. Same look, less effort. Hat tip (pun not intended) to Woolly Wormhead.
