Here is a simple and easy model to knit for those who wish to master the art of knitting in the round on circular needles using the "Magic loop" method.

♥ Stitch holder (or piece of scrap yarn of contrasting colour).

Haven't knitted them yet but do want to thank you for a nice product to work with.
I downloaded this to help my god-daughter, whom I am teaching to knit, to continue to learn to understand instructions and knit in the round. I have taught her on DPN's, I dont do the magic loop, so using a circ was a bit confusing, so we decided to ignore that bit prefering DPN. The american terminology is new to her too. I have already taught her to always check patterns as they may not always be English terms.
We do not like the thumb!!! But otherwise the pattern is helpful supportive learning curve.
The pattern is written very clearly and easy to understand. Done with one mitt already and looks great :)
