Knitting in the Round Part 2: Magic Loop Knitting

In this second part of our Knitting in the Round series, we look at the popular Magic Loop technique which uses a long circular knitting needle to knit a small circumference, for example a sock or a wrist warmer.  It is also useful for crowns of hats and for sleeves.  We will practice on a simple wrist warmer pattern on a 4mm 80cm or 100cm long circular needle.
