Knitting in the Round: How to Change Needles

Hello NobleKnitters!

It's Donna the Knitting Doctor here at NobleKnits and today I'm going to be sharing a short video on how to change needles in the middle of a circular knitting project. 

When you are learning to knit in the round, it’s hard to imagine how to change needles while working on just one needle.

Today, you’ll learn how and it’s easier than you think!

Scroll down to get right to the video!

So here I have a project on a set of circulars. I have knitted up to my marker. My pattern now tells me I need to change the needle size.

So what I'll do is remove the marker, pick up the new needle size, and just merely begin to knit with that needle.

As I work my way around, all my stitches will load onto the new needle and off of the old. That is literally how simple it is. 

PS. When all the stitches are moved to the new needle, don't forget to put your marker back on!

Again, that's how to change needle sizes in the middle of a circular knitting project. Thanks so much for watching you can find more videos on our YouTube Channel
