Merci pour cette vidéo , ainsi que pour tout votre site! Je trouve beaucoup plus pratique, aisé, de monter les mailles en rond à l' aide d'un crochet car le fil est plus facile à tirer . Je laisse toutes les mailles sur le crochet puis je les transfère sur les aiguilles .

Hello, I watched the video several times but I still can\'t make the first stitch. I do not understand the video. For instance at 23 seconds I can\'t figure what the left hand is doing with the end of the yarn. Is there any written explanation in English or French ? Thanks

Dear Laura, you will find written explanation to the magic circle in patterns like this hat (change language as you rather like to read). Happy knitting!

I love these videos. I am new to Garnstudio and finding new techniques with every pattern. The videos have explained every query on each of the 4 patterns I ha followed. Thank you.

Dear Paulina, Our videos do not have sound. We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English. We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!

Can you explain how you start to knit after you have finshed the magic circle? Kunt u uitteggen hoe je begint te breien als je de magische cirkel klaar hebt? Kan het ook op een rondbreinaald?

Dear Mrs Pomp, just distribute the sts onto the double pointed needles / on the circular needle if you work in magic loop, insert a marker at beg of round and start to work following pattern. Happy knitting!

You should twist sts on very first round, this eliminates holes in the middle. That's what this technique is all about :)

If you hold yarn like this, you get stitches on needle wrong way. When knitting you get twisted stitches.
