Is knitting tighter in the round?

Cons. It may not always be accurate. A lot of knitters knit more tightly at a small-circumference because working with magic loop or DPN’s is just different than knitting with a regular circular needle. Lots of us will tug our yarn more.

How do I know what size circular knitting needles to use?

Does length of circular knitting needles matter?
