3 Ways to Join In-the-Round

In this video, I demonstrate three different ways to join stitches in-the-round.

The Knitter’s Pride tools I use in this video are Platina 16″ circular needles from an interchangeable set that includes seven needle sizes.

You can find more information about Knitter’s Pride needles, as well as retailers using these links:

The yarn I use for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.

The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “Ilga”.

  1. Is the first technique (crossing the end stitches from each needle tip) a well-known technique? I came up with this very same idea on my own several years ago, and I was so pleased with myself because it really does give an excellent result. So glad to see it here!

  2. Hi Staci, My son is offering to buy me the set of Knitters Pride needles you are demonstrating. Firstly can they be used for anything other than hats and secondly, are there any outlets in England?
    PS: I’ve just bought your pattern for socks on 9″ needles – looking forward to starting them.

  3. Thanks for always wonderful tutorial! I have a question that I can’t find a solution for with joining in the round. I really like using the cable cast-on but the right/good side ends up on the inside of the round once you join it. How do you flip it right side out? I’ve tried a wrap and turn so the yarn is coming from the correct side but I’m always ending up loosing or gaining a stitch. Is there a simple method?

    I thought Staci had a solution somewhere here but I can’t find it now. Thank you!

  4. Bonni – yes, the cable CO gives you the right-side of the CO on the opposite side from say, a long-tail CO. You can just slip the first stitch, work around, then actually join the work at the beginning of the second round (by just working normally as if it was already joined). If the line us uneven when you’re finished, you can use this technique to correct it when you weave in the end:
