Knitters love to make hats, so if you haven’t made a hat before, now is the time to consider casting on!
While some hats may be knitted back and forth on straight needles, the majority of hats are knitted in the round on circular or double pointed needles.
The result is a seamless knitting project that works up in just a few hours. You get the benefit of trying new stitch patterns, interesting techniques, and near instant knitting gratification.
