Starting magic loop at the mitten cuff. With a long circular needle (I recommend at least 40″ long), cast on the number of stitches your pattern calls for. Find the halfway point that divides the stitches. Pinch the cable of the circular needle between those stitches, then pull on the cable of the needle.
Avoiding holes between fingers
- Pick up a few more stitches than what the pattern requires, then decrease them in the first row.
- Already knit your finger and still have a hole?
- Cross the two stitches that join the front and the back of the finger.

How do you knit two socks at the same time?
The first confusing thing you have to conquer when knitting two socks at a time of two circular needles is the fact that you don’t knit all of sock one and then all of sock two. Instead, you knit the first half of sock one, then the first half of sock two (these stitches are on the same needle).
How do you knit two things together?
To join two pieces together, thread a darning needle with the same yarn used to make the garment. Place the edges of the garment side by side with the right sides (the sides that people will see) FACING OUT. Stitch up the sides as shown, alternating from side to side.
