The little hat is knit in the round from the top down on double-pointed needles (DPNs). I like to use 2 needles for the live stitches and 1 needle to work with; however, you may find it easier to have 3 or 4 needles holding the stitches. I recommend looking for a set of 5 needles when buying DPNs. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stockinette Stitch k1f&b - Knit one stitch in the front and the back of the loop - an increase of 1 stitch k2tog - knit 2 stitches together - a decrease of 1 stitch Turkish Cast-On - instructions given Kitchener Stitch - instructions given GAUGE 4.5 stitches and 7 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch with main color.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
