Hi all,
I bought some knit online and when it came discovered that it is in a circle. I have no idea how to determine the straight of grain with this. Since it's a knit, I can't tear it, and there's no selvage edge.

Is a magnifying glass my only chance of getting it right?

Sadly, yes. You'll have to cut it open, then find a rib and mark it to establish the grain line. Or start with finding a rib, mark it, and cut along it. The ribs often spiral around the tube, although you might get lucky and have one that's straight.

Often there is a permanent crease, if there is cut on that.
