Getting Turned Around on Magic Loop

Getting turned around/inside out on Magic Loop

KnitFreedom student Mari had a great question:

I just started my first sock two days ago, and I have noticed I'm inside out, but I'm still a little confused.

Somehow, my toes are right side out, and the rest of the sock is inside out.

I'm just wondering what I did so I can fix it next time around.

When You Get Turned Around The Wrong Way on Magic Loop

Mari's problem was that she got turned around - that is, she didn't come back to ready position before she kept knitting.

This is a common Magic Loop mistake, and I'm so glad she asked, because now we all get to learn from it. Here's a video showing how to fix it.

Going Back Around the Wrong Way on Magic Loop

Mari also said,

Since I'm confused and I don't want to stop knitting, I've decided to just keep going with it inside out. I'm not really wor­ried if it looks weird this first time around - I just started learning how to knit this Halloween.

What a great attitude! This is a wonderful way to treat yourself when you are learning something new. I love her attitude and we can all learn something from this.

  1. Thank you! I’m sure that is what happened. I’m having so much fun with my knitting adventures. I appreciate your help!

  2. Since I started using the Magic Loop method, 2 years ago, I have thrown out every other knitting needle I have! There is nothing too large or too small that can be made on ONE 36-inch circular knitting needle. And you’ll never lose ONE needle unless you lose the whole project! This is fabulous! Everyone working on MITTENS should try this out! It will swing minds until the cows come home! Happy knitting!
