Don't skip this part! Knowing how many stitches to knit is necessary for a hat that perfectly fits your head. The last thing you want is a doll-sized hat or a hat for a bucket. If you're giving this as a gift, the average adult head is around 22 inches in circumference 56 cm. Take note of how many stitches there are per inch. Multiply the measurement of your head by the number of stitches needed per inch.
This is the number of stitches you will need at the base. You may want to round down to a number divisible by eight; this will make it easier to reduce later, for the top of your hat. Rounding down is safer than rounding up; yarn stretches easier than it shrinks. This is where the math you just did comes in handy. Cast on the amount of stitches needed for the base of your head 84 in the previous example. If you've never knitted or knitted in the round before, learn how to knit first and do some research online.
Join your cast on stitches in the round. The circular knitting needle makes this ultra-easy to do. Be careful not to twist! Twisted rounds cannot be fixed; if you're not careful, you'll have to start completely over. What you end up with will not resemble a hat. Around and around and around you go! Try your hat on at different times to gauge how many more rounds you should make. The circular needles create a brim that rolls automatically.
Because of this, you'll need to knit for a bit longer to account for the lost length. If done well, this part will leave your hat snug on your head. If you're unfamiliar with decreasing, stop now and do some research online. Place stitch markers every 8 stitches. When at 2 stitches before the marker, decrease a fancy term for knitting two stitches together at once. Continue this pattern, decreasing every round. After decreasing for a bit, you'll notice your hat getting smaller and smaller.
Don't be afraid to adjust your needles accordingly; this won't mess up your work. When you have just 4 stitches left on your needle, you're ready. Snip off more than enough to work with in finishing the hat, about inches cm. Take a darning needle or crochet hook and pull the loose yarn through your remaining 4 stitches one at a time.
This will tighten the top of your hat. After you've pulled the loose yarn through each stitch on the needle, slide the needle out. Hide the excess yarn. Grab the loose end and pull it down through the top of the hat with your crochet hook.
Cut it down to about a few inches. Weave in the end using a darning needle down the length of your hat. This will remain secure and tight and hide the seam. You can also hide the starting tail end by weaving it through the hat as well. You can't really know since it depends on the yarn. The best way is to knit a swatch and then measure it. This will give you the most accurate answer. Not Helpful 2 Helpful Keep knitting until the hat is almost big enough to fit on your head before you begin to decrease.
If it comes out a little large, you can roll up the bottom edge of the hat a bit more. Not Helpful 3 Helpful You remove the stitch markers from the hat. You can do this by either getting stitch markers that open up like safety pins or by slipping them off your needle as you pass them while knitting and no longer require them. You could, if she's willing and you don't want to do it yourself.
But there's more satisfaction in making something yourself, and it's always good to learn a new skill! Plus, it's cool to be able to tell people, "Hey! I made this myself! Not Helpful 13 Helpful The same way you would on regular needles. Knit one stitch, purl one stitch. If you've cast on an odd number of stitches, you will need to knit or purl two stitches at one and only one!
Not Helpful 11 Helpful How do I know when I'm on the same row to begin decreasing? Or does this matter? When you first begin circular knitting, you need to place a stitch marker at the very last stitch in the row. If you don't have any stitch markers, a paper clip will do just fine. That way, you'll know every time when you've reached the end of your row and begun a new one. This is extra important in circular knitting so that it comes out right and everything looks even. Not Helpful 4 Helpful 9.
Use 5 double-pointed needles. You place 30 stitches on the first needle, 30 on the second, 30 on the third and 30 on the fourth. Then you use the fifth needle to knit. Your fifth needle will constantly replace the needle that held the quarter that you just knitted. After you have knitted the first stitches, you join the beginning and the end to create a square.
By this method, you also need to make sure that you untwist the stitches that you have already done. Now you can start knitting in the round or square while still on the needles, it will look like a square.
