Fingerless gloves knitted in the round


The pattern says cast on 24 stitches and knit in the round. How is that possible with only 24 stitches?


Usually, we use double point needles to knit small, tubular items such as socks and mittens. Now, there are several techniques knitters can choose from.

Here are some example of knitting in rounds using different methods;

Knitting with double point needles

Knitting in circle using magic loop technique

Knitting in round using 2 needles methods

I hope I don't overwhelm you with these info. Thanks for the question and visiting.
