I had a request for a hat but of course my needles are back in Tampa so while I was out at the post office today, I stopped in to the small quilt shop in Jasper that also sells yarn and needles … only they didn’t have double pointed needles in the size I needed to go along with the circular needle I found there. The shop owner suggested I just make the hat using the Magic Loop method …. something I’m familiar with but have never tried. I had to restart once because I twisted it while I was fiddling with the cable but I think I’ve got it on the 2nd attempt.
I haven’t made much progress yet but I think I have the process down so we’ll see how it goes. I’m not using her pattern but I watched this video a few times to understand how to set up the hat and how to manipulate the cable and needles. Do you use Magic Loop in your knitting? Do you like the method?
