:XX:

i think we would need more information about the hat to be able to really answer your question. what is the next thing it tells you to do after you cast on the 87 stitches and what kind of needle does it tell you to use?

Hello and welcome! :waving:

Most likely you’ll need a circular needle unless you’re supposed to knit the hat flat and then seam it up the back. What pattern are you using, and what other directions does it give?
