Rewriting Flat Instructions To Circular

Before beginning, you should convert your flat instructions into circular instructions in writing, because it's easy to lose track of where you are. See the sample conversion below for help.

Before Row 1 (RS): *K1, p3: rep from * to end of row.

Row 2 (WS): *K 1, sl 1 wyib, k1, p 1; rep from * to end of row.

Rnd 1: *K1, p3; rep from * to end of rnd. Rnd 2: *K 1, p1, sl 1 wyif, p 1; rep from * to end of rnd.

Joining the Round Invisibly

Knitting in the round is really like knitting in a spiral. That's why you get that little stair step when you join the round. You can alleviate this problem somewhat. When casting on, cast on 1 extra stitch. When you join the first round, slip the last stitch that was cast on from the right needle to the left. Join the round using both the working yarn and the tail to knit the first 2 stitches on the left needle together (these are the extra stitch that you slipped from right to left, and what had been the first cast-on stitch). Drop the tail and knit the rest of the round as usual. To begin the second round, knit together that first double stitch made from the working yarn and the tail. You will now be back to the required number of stitches.
