My design ideas and advice: A simple hat perfect for sock weight yarn. This hat is knitted in the round, so no seams to sew up! We start on 3.25mm (40cm length) circular needles and then move onto 3.25mm dpns (double pointed needles) for shaping the crown as here the stitches reduce and are too few to continue on a circular.
