Making a hat out of a rectangle


Help I have a question! I just knitted a hat on single needles and the pattern tells me to stitch the edges. What I have is a 24" long rectangle. How do I make this into a hat?


Does the pattern have some sort of a diagram that shows you what to sew together??



You are going to lay this out with the long sides going horizontally. Your short sides will go vertically. Thread a tapestry needle with yarn. Weave the needle and yarn in and out through the rectangle at the top edge. Pull your stitches tight. Tie a knot in it so it doesn’t come loose. Bring the two vertical edges together and stitch from your gathered top to the bottom edge.
