We will be working on this hat in the round. The only requirement that we have is that you know how to knit and purl. You will learn how to size the hat, how to work decreases so that they are virtually invisible and how to knit stripes. This is a great fun project that can be finished in only a day or two.
The hat shown was worked with two balls of Karabella yarn. All yarn left over from the hat was used to make the pompom on top. If you need help with the top of the hat we will happily help you with the closure and the pom pom during regular shop hours.
You will probably need a size 8 16 inch circular needle for this pattern. In addition, you may wish to make the rib little tighter which would require a size 7 or 6 16 inch circular needle Needle sizes to give you your desired final result depend on the tension in your knitting. It is a good idea to bring more supplies to class than you think you will need.
Please call with any questions.
