Circular knitting or knitting in the round is a form of knitting that creates a seamless tube.
When knitting circularly, the knitting is cast on and the circle of stitches is joined.
Knitting is worked in rounds (the equivalent of rows in flat knitting) in a spiral.
Originally, circular knitting was done using a set of four or five double-pointed needles.
Later, circular needles were invented, which can also be used to do circular knitting:
the circular needle looks like two short knitting needles connected by a cable between them.
Tips for knitting with Norwegian color patterns and circular knitting patterns.
Most Norwegian knitting designs, especially those involving color work, are symmetrical in nature along central
stitches of both front and back. Thus, due to the complexity of Norwegian patterning, an even number of repeats often
does not occur as in Fair Isle knitting; the knitter is instructed to place markers at specified points in the work, marking
the patterns’ side edges. It is important to take care when reading instructions and charts to keep the designs centered
on both the garment’s front and back. To work from a Norwegian pattern graph begin at the first marker (left side of front
for pullovers or right front opening for cardigans) with the stitch marked “Begin here” on the graph and work to the next
marker (right side of front/back for pullovers and cardigans). Work the back of the body, beginning again as instructed
on the graph. For pullovers, complete the round or for cardigans, work to the next marker and begin the left front so that
the left front is a mirror image of the right front. The pattern will be centered on both front and back of the garment,
matching at the shoulders.
For circular knitting patterns with dimensions in inches and ounces.
our gauge is likely to be different when working in the round
than it would be worked flat on
the same needle size. This is because people usually purl at a different tension than they knit.
This presents problems with doing gauge swatches! Knit stitch by doing this: knit a row;
slide the work to the other end of the cable needle or DPN; leaving a long strand of yarn in back.
Something like this here.
Norwegian or Fair Isle knitting, lends itself beautifully to circular knitting, a favorite way of knitting
for many knitters, much lesser mistakes are made !

Very easy to knit and you stay at the front while knitting, use a Norwegian or fair isle knitting pattern.
The basic knit fabric (usually called a stocking or stockinette pattern) has a definite right side and wrong side.
Because the yarn holding rows together is all on the front, and the yarn holding side-by-side stitches together is
all on the back, stockinette stitch has a strong tendency to curl toward the front on the top and bottom,
and toward the back on the left and right side.
With knitting in the round the stitches are worked in the round as nothing but knit stitches.
This is a great way to knit Norwegian or Fair Isle patterns.
Working in the round has two main advantages:
no seams are needed to make up the garment after knitting,
and it allows the knitter to create a smooth and even stocking stitch.
Perfect for sweaters, cardigans and socks, they all can be knitted in the round.

so you have to knit a tension swatch first then choose your pattern with the right gauge.
