Question about Knitting in the Round/Joining

Posted by jannie (My Page) on

I tried to make a knitted hat. It was knitted in the round on circular needles. Somehow I joined the first row upside down and it was coming out awful, so bad I hsd to quit that project. I'd like to try again, because there's a charity that collects hand-knit caps for Cancer Patients. I'd love to be able to make some. Can someone either give me a good written description of how to join or post a link to good visual directions?

Make sure you stitches are not twisted before joining.

RE: Question about Knitting in the Round/Joining

You may want to knit back and forth for a couple of rows before you join - the small gap this creates at the beginning is easily closed when you weave in your yarn end. It makes it simpler to join without twisting.

I learned from knitting on four needles that you must knit that firt "joining" stitch in the back of the stitch to prevent any space between the two where you join.

Did you ever figure it out?
