Hats Four Ways

Circular Knit Lab

with Stefanie Japel
Hats Four Ways
You’ll learn how to knit a hat with circular needles as you construct this cute and colorful collection.

Well-loved knitwear designer Stefanie Japel shares her "purls" of wisdom with you as she teaches you to knit three unique styles of hats. Circular Knit Lab begins with essential information about circular needles and knitting in the round, including choosing supplies and creating the perfect circumference for any size head. Learn how to increase and decrease in the round, blocking, making jogless joins, and adding fun embellishments like embroidery to your custom-fit hats. You'll learn to knit hats using four different circular knitting techniques. At the end of the course you'll have come full circle and have knitted three hats to wear or give as gifts.

"I really enjoy all of Stefanie's classes here on Craftsy. Stefanie is such a wonderful instructor and very clear on her directions. I have always wondered about the magic loop method and knitting on two circular needles and Stefanie has broken down the steps so it is easy to understand."
