I went looking back in this forum and found a very helpful site. Thank you for answering, I think I understand now, but again I have a question.
I want to knit a basic pullon hat, how do I gauge the size of the needles to use? There is a pattern on the site that shows a beginning cap and it calls for casting on 60sts, when I casted on the sts, they didn't go from needle to needle, so my question is, how to do you attach the last st. to the first one casted on if the yarn doesn't reach all the way around?
Aslo, what is the best size needle to use for an average adult cap?
