  4. I knitted this hat up in a day. I am very happy with the results and enjoyed making it. The decreasing on double ended needles was fun once I figured out the reason for the fifth needle. My rib has a slight spirality. Is that typical of circular knitting.

  5. What does it mean to k1 "around", or k2tog "around", or k1 p1 "around"? Does that just mean you do it all the way "around" the row? Sorry, I know I'm a n00b xD

    1. yes, "around" means to work that stitch, or pattern or stitches, around the entire row. and don't be sorry - it's a good question!

  6. Would this pattern still work if I only had a round needle to do it with?

    1. It would, but you might run into issues once the decreases got going. At some point there will be too few stitches to fit comfortably around your circular needle. If you don't have double pointed needles, you can just bind off at this point, although your hat will be a bit shorter and there will be more stitches at the top of the hat.

    2. You can use the 'magic loop' technique to work the whole thing on a circular needle, no need for double pointed needles.
      Basically, the cable on the circular needle pooches out between stitches at 2 places in the circle - you knit around to that gap, and then scootch the stitches around. Check YouTube for video instructions

    3. You can also use two circular needles instead of the "magic loop" method when you have too few stitches on one 16" circular to knit comfortably around. Personally, I prefer two circular needles to double pointed needles. As Adriene says, check out YouTube! There's a wealth of information there!

  11. I made this hat and a crochet scarf in a black/grey acrylic tweed for my boyfriend as a Valentine's Day gift. He's refusing to wear them as everyday wear calling the set "for dress." What? (sigh) I'm now making him another hat using this pattern for "casual everyday wear."

    He and I both like the pattern. Him, because it's stretchy and super comfortable, and me because it's a quick, no-brainer project. A few bus commutes and an evening or two of TV and, violia!, I have another hat. Thanks for the pattern! It's a keeper.

    Up next, making hats from my stash for the Syrian refugees.
