Magic Loop
need at least a 40" cable
co # of stitches needed (lets say 60) - fold cable in 1/2 with needles held together. Split the stitches 30 onto each needle. MAKE SURE STITCHES ARE NOT TWISTED!!!
And that yarn tail is in the back.
Pull out back needle, enough to make a loop when using that needle to knit with - you will also have a loop on the other side of stitches.  Looking like a hourglass or figure 8 without the crossover.

Meegan- Spun a little on "Blankets" & got my Jenkins Turkish Delight Drop Spindle!
