I taught my little sister how to knit a few weeks ago, and she wanted to make a hat. We both bought some Wool-ease Chunky yarn. I took mine home and worked on making up a cool hat with a pretty easy pattern so she could follow it.
This is what I came up with.
I’d consider this an advanced beginner project. It requires the use of a circular needle and double pointed needles. You’ll need to know how to both knit and purl (plus knit two together and purl two together).
