Mini-Class: Magic Loop
"Magic Loop" - the mysterious method for turning your long circulars into just what you need to knit small-diameter items like socks and kids' hats. It's one of the handiest techniques we've learned over the years... just what you need when your yarn shop is closed (or you're on vacation) and you need a solution to work something small in the round.
It can be a little tricky to get started, though, so we're going to offer a mini-class so you can give this a go on your next project. It's sock-adjacent, but you'll find it handy for everything from cowls to sweater sleeves to fingerless mitts.
Please provide your own materials; Lindsey will be using a worsted-weight yarn and larger needles for the convenience of demonstrating and teaching via Zoom. You will find it easiest to follow along if you're using a light color of yarn.
