The knitting in the round technique involving the round needle allows you to knit up stylish clothes, fashion accessories and home décor items. It does not necessarily follow that you cannot make the same things using straight needles. But using round needles ensures a neater finishing, often eliminating the necessity of seaming and stitching the ends and edges. Knitting in the round is ideal for producing nice snowflake patterns and colorful spiral designs. It is commonly used for knitting projects like beanie hats, mittens and socks as well as dishcloths, booties and basket bags.
