How do you stop a gap in knitting?
Keep the Stitches Close Together
Pinch that back cable to meet the new needle when you start knitting on a new needle, and that will close up the gap and help you avoid ladders. This can work with double-pointed needles, too.
Why is my knitting in the round inside out?
What Suzeeq is essentially saying is that you’re knitting it correctly. It’s just that the Right side of the work is facing the inside. It appears inside out, but it won’t be in the end. If it bothers you, you can ‘flip’ the tube so that the orientation of the knit stitches appear right side out.
Is knitting in the round difficult?
Knitting in the round can seem daunting, but with a bit of practice, it’s no more difficult than knitting on straight needles.
How do you tell right side from wrong side in knitting?
The easiest way to distinguish the sides is to look at a simple swatch in Stockinette Stitch. The flat side with all the V’s on it is the “right” side. The bumpy purl side is the “wrong” side. If your pattern calls for Reverse Stockinette, it’s the opposite.
What side should yarn be on when knitting?

What is the magic loop method?
The magic loop method is way of creating pieces with small circumferences (think sweater sleeves or socks) by using just one long, circular needle. It can be done on any needle size with a cable length of at least 32″ or more, so try out a few lengths to find the one that works the best for you.
