Watch how to use circular needles and make a very chic accessory in no time

Wool and Gang shows how to knit a funky hat. This project is a good one for "confident beginners" and those wanting a chic accessory to wear. Note: Althoug the video features the use of circular needles, you can also make the hat with double pointed needles.
If you've never used circular needles before, this video will show you everything you need to know, from how to do a long-tail cast on (for a stretchy cast-on edge) to joining. But with a design this cute, even experts will love this pattern. Whether this is your first circular knit project or your 1000th, this hat makes a cozy accessory for yourself or to give away.
