I saw long time ago a woman knitting with a plastic cup. It seemed very interesting, so I found out how she did it. Seems complicated, but, really, it is not. The point is to make a piece of knit with no seams, totally tubular. This is a very fast way to knit, easy too. Considering the diameter of cardboard tube, number of wire pieces and thickness of the thread, we get the density of knit pattern - if we take a thick wool thread on more wire pieces, it will be more dense, and if we use thin thread with only few wire pieces, the knitted area will be more see-trough, fish-net type. This is very useful if we are trying to make summer decorations, ie on linen bags - in the thread tube we can place a pebble, snails or sea-shells, and sew on some pearls.
Also, if you take a tube of a bigger diameter, you can knit a tube shawls, sleeves, leg and arm warmers... anything. You won't have any seams, which is prefered if you are a messy beginner person when it comes to this. This should ease it a lot.

In this description I will explain the basics and the way this method works, so I used a thick wool. You can play & combine, have fun!

    This is made use of a handy tool which will give you a really nice pattern that is symmetric and precise if you would care to do it with some patience. Output will depend on the choice of colours. So make sure you have some ideas. hotels in catalina
