The knitting technique.

Circular knitting or knitting in the round is a form of knitting that creates a seamless tube. When knitting circularly, the knitting is cast on and the circle of stitches is joined. Knitting is worked in rounds in a spiral. That’s why it’s called: seamless knitting.

5 interesting facts about circular knitting:

  1.  You can knit up to 8 yarns at the same time. So when you finish one round of the circle: you have knitted 8 rows!
  2.  The diameter equals the amount of needles. For the knitting machine this is a given fact. When you want to increase or decrease the size of the tube, you need to switch to an other machine with a bigger or smaller diameter.
  3. When knitting on the machine, air suction will actually suck the knitted fabric down into the machine.
  4. The knitting machine is so advanced the needle hooks are extremely tiny. That’s why you can knit with very thin materials (such as elastane and bare nylon). It’s like knitting with rag from a spider.
  5.  For the knitting experts: when knitting on a circular machine it is not the feeders that moves but the cylinder with needles that moves in circles.
