When you're knitting in circular needles or DPNs, for some people the knitting will come out inside-out. Can you check to see if you can just pull the knitting through the space in the middle of the needles to turn it right side out? Smiley

That would be amazing!  The binding is what's stopping me from playing with these guys

I made a video but can't seem to cut it down and edit it. I will try again soon!

Can anybody on here give me a hand with starting my beekeeper a quilt? It keeps coming out with the stocking stitch on the inside as opposed to the outside and as a beginner I've no idea where I'm going wrong! Thankyou Smiley

A lot of people have this same issue, but it isn't really a problem, you can just turn it inside out when you're done, before you stuff it.  Grin

How's everyone coming along?





I recently laid all mine out to look at the colors. Definitely need more green...

I stumbled upon the Beekeepers quilt last year and I really loved the idea - but forgot it later. Now I rediscovered it an bought the pattern yesterday! I plan to knit the little hexipuffs in the train on my way to my job.

I have loved the look of this since I first saw it and I'd love to make one. But I'm hesitant to commit to the pattern because I struggle to cast on to DPNs. Is it worked from the inside out or the outside in? And if it's inside out could I modify it to work it the other way or knit flat?

Thanks in advance. Smiley

it is right-side out and only worked on three DPNs so it is basically worked flat.
The stitches are cast onto one needle and then rearranged between two and then knit in the "round"
You could easily double-knit them I suppose
