I want to knit this hat: http://stephanieknits.blogspot.com/2007/03/keeping-boyfriends-ears-warm-since-2006.html
but have not yet mastered how to knit in the round. Is it ok if I just knit it flat and then sew up the side?? If I can do that...will it look ok?
Sure. It'll look okay, but it will have a seam that'll be a little bit visible. If you don't mind then it's fine. Add a couple stitches extra to seam with.
Great, thanks Jan!!
