Hat pattern with

side seams? I want an easy pattern for beginners so they don’t have to knit in the round for thier first project. What’s a simple cast x amount of stitches, decrease x number of stitches x amount of times till you only have x stitches left and sew up a seam on the side kind of pattern? Knittingpattern central has all knit itr patterns.

Or if anyone has a good set of calculations for doing a side seam hat too that would be great. I’m not so good with that kind of thing.:rollseyes:

the first hat I did was the VW hat, without the VW part. it is knit flat, with one seam. it was EASY!
