I am a novice knitter and this is the first hat I've done. I am using straight needles and the pattern is Sirdar 3100.
I have managed to finished the last row in the pattern and there are 6 stitches on the needle. It then says "to break off yarn, then run yarn through rem sts, draw up then fasten"
How much yarn should I leave and what exactly does this mean? What do I fasten? etc. I also assume I don't have to bind off??
How do I then go about sewing the hat together? ( I've never done that before) Do I use the weaving stitch?
All help would be appreciated
