      Awesome! Glad you’re enjoying the site. Do you mean you want to learn to knit in the round?

      • Janette

        January 8, 2013

        Yes I do. You would not believe how many times I have looked at videos for this on YouTube and have failed because the instructions are confusing,,, if I don’t learn soon, there will be a mass let’s get grandma movement….lol

        If you could help with this, I would be eternally grateful……

          Can you email me with your request? There’s a contact link in the main menu. This isn’t really the right place to address it. Thanks!

    Hi, thank you for video… simple yet easy to understand. But I would like to know how to join the 2 side together and make it like a tube? I ever saw some they start the joining at the begining and keep doing till the end. I just can’t figure out how was it done.

    I would like to know how to crochet this stitch in the round. How would you increase this? On what rounds would you increase it? I’m trying to make a light weight vest with a large flower pattern on the back, then use this stich to increase in rounds until it is big enough. And I think I’ve crocheted then pulled this project apart so much, I’m just about ready to give up on it! Please help!

      That’s a little beyond the type of support we can provide.

      There are resources online that can help you translate flat crochet patterns into patterns in the round.

      As for shaping, your best bet is to add a border that you do your shaping in.

    Thanks so much for this tutorial – it was exactly what I was looking for! One question – if I want to decrease with this (to make a triangle or trapezoid), what would be the best way of going about that?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      July 17, 2013

      I would probably incorporate a panel of another stitch to do my shaping. You can’t really decrease this pattern easily.

    I love this site, the stitchionary is so useful, I just wish it didn’t take so much paper to print off one tutorial.

    • Johnny Vasquez

      May 7, 2013

      we’re working on it. We’ll be updating the site in the not too distant future and will address that issue. For now doing a copy and paste will cut down on the paper usage.

        Thank you, I will try that.
