i am a newbie to knitting
(well i learnt ages ago but never really took it anywhere and this christmas my mum taught me again)
so i’m interested in knitting hats.
I just knitted the freebee ‘apple hat’ pattern which came out very cute but far too small, i didn’t have dpn’s and i wouldn’t know what to do with them even if i did have them so i knitted it on size 5 straight needles flat and joined it up. (should have been size 6 or 7)
I created the stem bit, by knitting six stitches and then transferring them back to the other needle each time, so it was going in one direction and it kind of worked.
So, what would you suggest i buy next to continue knitting hats, dpn’s or a circular one?
which is easier?
any info appreciated.
