I woke up this morning and decided that I wanted to knit a hat… I don’t know what I’m doing. I never knitted before and thought I could follow along with a youtube video, but I’m using smaller needles than her, so the hat I tried knitting looked way too small.
I need to know how many stitches to cast on so the hat will fit my head.
I am using
Needles: US #5 3.75mm
Yarn: Lion Brand Heartland Medium 4
Head: 22 inches around.
My calculations were to cast on 220 stitches, but that many won’t fit on my needles. I’m getting about 11 stitches per inch when the stitches are bunched up as tight as I can get them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
