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

      • Janette says:

        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.

  3. Rachel B says:

    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!

    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?

  5. says:

    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 says:

      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.
