How to Change Needles In the Middle of Your Project

Sometimes a cord breaks, sometimes a needle breaks, and sometimes the pattern instructs you to change needle sizes. Hopefully, not all 3 in the same project! 🙂

If you’re like I used to be when this happens, you painstakingly transfer each stitch to the new needle before knitting the next round. But there is a better way! 

Changing knitting needles in the middle of your project is a snap if you know how! In the following videos, I show you how to change needles while knitting in the round, either normally or 2-at-a-time.
