Knitting in the Round

Knitting in the round, or circular knitting, is what you do when you want to knit a tube. Hats, socks, mittens, gloves, and skirts are frequently knit in the round. When you knit in the round, you knit around and around on the right side only. Therefore, if you're working in stockinette stitch, knitting in the round eliminates the need to purl. It also reduces the necessity of sewing seams, so that finishing is quicker and easier.
