One of the most frequent questions popping up all over the place is, “I’m learning to use circular needles, and after a few rows, my knitting is inside out. Help!”
Not to worry. This is a common occurrence ( I’ve been knitting for years and years and still find it happening.) But take heart – it’s not really a problem. It happens on the first few rows, before the fabric has grown long enough to prevent it. The needles flip around and the inside turns to the outside, like a T-shirt pulled over your head. All you have to do is treat your knitting like that T-shirt and push it through the circle formed by the needles, so it’s outside out again.
If only all mistakes were so easily corrected. Actually, some knitters prefer to knit inside out!
