Double Pointed Needles ~ Cast On Tutorial


I learned to knit using double pointed needles and so I love this technique. If a flat pattern can be worked in the round, I modify it. I love circular needles too and the different ways they can be used to create seamless work.

With sock knitting becoming ever more popular, this double point technique seemed timely. Click the photo to take you to this wonderful tutorial and more pictures that illustrate the cast on and beginning rows. If you’ve not used dpn’s before or it’s been awhile, this is worth a peek!
