How to knit in the round on two circular needles

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit in the round on two circular needles.

When you knit a smaller piece in the round like a sock or a cuff, and you don’t want to use or you don’t have double pointed needles, you can knit in the round using two circular needles.
Cast on with one circular, divide sts by moving half the sts to another circular. Pull needles through to the side where you have the working yarn. Make sure sts on round are not twisted when joining. Start knitting sts on the needle not attached to working yarn. Always make sure to tighten first stitch on needle. Knit with the same needle as the worked sts are on, let the other needle rest.
