What does it mean to turn work when knitting in a round?
After you have cast on all your stitches (or finished a row) in a flat knitting project, your pattern will ask you to “turn your work.” This instruction is asking you to flip your needle over so that you can prepare to work the next row.
How do you turn your knitting 90 degrees and pick up stitches?
Turn your work 90 degrees clockwise and pick up one stitch in each of the garter ridges that you created. Insert your working needle in the edge of the garter ridge and knit into the stitch. Turn your work again 90 degrees clockwise and pick up three stitches along the edge.
Is knitting in the round difficult?

Can you untwist knitting?
If you detect a twist in your cast on and you have just knitted the first row you can just twist it right and continue knitting. … Twisting back twisted knitting can even be done after a few rows, but it will create a bump and be a bit uneven. Try and see if it bothers you or not.
