In this video, I talk about the basics of converting a pattern that is designed to be knit flat, to a pattern that is knit in-the-round (in a tube). I’ve broken it down into four points:
1. Think about the structure of the piece – is this modification a good idea?
2. Subtract two stitches for every seam (the first and last stitch of the row).
3. Convert wrong-side rows to right-side rounds.
4. If you need help, schedule a private lesson with the knitting teacher at your local yarn shop.
The hat pattern in the thumbnail photo is Divelish (a pattern that is written in-the-round).
