Lisa February 14, at 7: How many double point needles do I need for this little cute hat?
I think it would be too bulky. No — but depending on the stitch and the loom size — a brimless hat is ok. But again depending on the stitch the edge will roll and create a different brim you may not want. Going to start a hat tomorrow!
Thank you for your wonderful tutorials. I am about to close my hat that I made using your video but I have a problem! There is a stitch that I may have missed. My hat came out great. I did notice that there were holes in some parts of the hat that were bigger than others mainly the bottom of the hat.. How can I fix this problem? This post may be helpful: Hay Denise can you please make a video on how to make pointed animal ears with two colors example white on the inside and black on the outside.
Here is the closes I can get you to this project: Is there any other way to close a hat than the drawstring method that most tutorials show?
I would like something more tapered. Wow, what a great tutorial! Very easy to follow along. Your videos were the only way I could learn to loom knit. Thanks for taking the time to teach.
I have one question. When a pattern says knit what wrap do I use? Wow Destiny — that question is harder then you think. There are 4 versions that I am aware. Here is a post with a video tutorial on all four. The eBay knitting loom sellers ship worldwide. You can grab your looms at your local crafting […]. Thank you, thank you thank you so much! I never believed I could make anything. Getting the gauge accurate was so much easier on my loom.
I was able to keep up. Looking forward to loom more of your projects…Sandra. Your tutorial is hands down the very BEST! Thank you so much for the time you spent making this! I have tried to learn loom knitting several times previously to no avail. Because of your video I actually made it all the way through my very first hat!
It leaves a bit to be desired but I am excited to try again! Next — you have to do the scarf: Hi ive just started using my long loom to make hats for friends and family and its going really well but my sister in law has now asked if i could knit a doll dress for her little girls baby annabelle doll and im totally lost, i cant find a really simply pattern anywhere ive even tried prem baby knitting patterns but they are few and far between and the ones ive found are really complicated i was wondering if you had a simple easy to follow step by step pattern that even i could follow to make a simple dress on my loom for her.
Also my friend has asked if i could make a jumper for her little very little chihuahua im totally stuck, why cant they just have a hat and scarf and be happy with that lol any help would be greatly appreciated, i dont know where else to look and i dont want to let them down. For a simple pattern with a video tutorial: For the Dog jumper — try this video: Knit e-Warp stitch With your hook — flip the bottom two strands over and behind the top two.
Estrellita, here is a gallery of baby hats: Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful knowledge with us. After weeks of discouragement in trying to make a hat, I finally made my first one yesterday, thanks to you and your tutorials!
All the best to you! With the bulky 5 I moved up to the yellow loom cause I figured bigger yarn, bigger loom. Am now back to working with two skeins and everything is fine. Thank you so much for your video and your guidance on how to work with a loom. Compliments were at every stop I made. Well, I tried my first hat on the loom green with 2 skeins reg.
I found it to be very cumbersome when doing the stitches. Now…first time doing anything is a learning project. And which bulky would you suggest? Yes, the hat came out great….
I am a beginner in loom knitting. Your videos are so easy to understand. Thank you for explaining in detail and taking your time for visual learners like myself…. I am a retired senior who has just taken up loom knitting, needing something to do that did not require a large cash outlay for tools and materials.
I need some help. I am doing the circle knit stitch and do not know if I am doing something wrong, or this is the way the knitting should go. I do not think that is right. Is it supposed to do that? If not what do you think I am doing wrong?
I would appreciate any help you could pass along, or any place I could get an answer. Thanking you in advance, and sitting here frustrated in Arizona….. Just trying to catch up. You are knitting correctly if the project is increasing in size. When you finish the hat the knitting will contract and be a normal size.
Now depending on the size of your loom not necessarily the number pegs it will be for an adult or child. Are you using a Knifty Knitter or something like it? If yes, use my size chart to know which loom to use: I am making my first beanie style hat on a round loom and am confused as to what to do with the small strand of yarn that I initially connected to my round loom with.
I did not do a brim. Laura, best thing to do is to get a crochet hook and weave that thread up into the inside wrong side of the hat. Wow, I liked the videos on making hats, am not as good as I had seen in the videos, but Im sure I can pick up those ideas on how to do them!!
I just finished my very first hat!!! It fits a little snug, but the length is perfect. Hi Jenni, first of all congrats on your blog. Went for a peek — was there for an hour. Yes the internet is a pit we fall into to often. It keeps us from answering questions we get on our blogs. Anyway, I can say that I enjoyed myself. You are soooo real, love to hear that other folks with teenagers have regular homes with disaster areas.
It looks scary big — but it does fit regular folk. See the Slouchy Hat post. That hat was made with an extra large loom. This is a good one to make for your kids. I bought the round loom kit and the scarf loom for my 11 yr old granddaughter for Christmas, she loves the child activity sets, so I bought these instead of the toy loom.
She left them with me to try first, lol, I was intimidated at first but after having to redo the first 2 rows a couple of times too tight I got the hang if it and she may not get these back. I just wanted to tell you thanks for the easy way you teach this in the video and I hope to make lots and lots of these. Thanks sooooooooo much for all your kind words.
They mean ALOT to me. I know it does: Also make note of the fact that although women tend to be smaller then men — we have more hair. I do use the large yellow for my bucket hats. By-the-way, my twelve year old wears them.
Those are the ones you see a lot on this site. Go to the video page and you will see two of them. The green loom makes tight fit hats for adults — like the beanies. Notify me of new posts by email.

Denise Canela December 1, at Mary Rausch November 16, at Roxie November 7, at 5: Very good with all the details. Denise Canela November 8, at 8: No bumps or pulls or end of row showing?
My sample was made with variegated yarn. Maybe someone else will respond with a tried and true method. I realize that k2tog and ssk are both ways of decreasing. You can just decrease with k2tog instead of the ssk and the hat will be the same size and shape as one with the ssk. The difference is in the appearance of the stitches. It gives the appearance of two columns of stitches and stitches running under them from either side.
So I made this pattern. Super easy but it really bunched up at the top with almost a star like look from the top. Did I do something wrong or was it supposed to look like that? Did you make one of the larger sizes?
The smaller sizes should definitely have smooth rounded tops. I have gotten comments about the larger sizes being bunched. What some have done is after the rounds I have for the crown, they add another round of knit and then a round of k2tog before finishing.
I want to make this hat with worsted weight for a 5 year old. Can you advise me on needle size 7? What needle size does your yarn recommend?
And with that needle size what is the gauge? I just knit the toddler hat and it is huge! Way too big for even my husband. I went back and recalculated my circumferences and agree that what I had labeled a toddler size with the cast on is much larger than a toddler size.
I am so sorry for that. I have changed all that sizing in the pattern now. A cast on of with a gauge of 22 stitches per 4 inches would produce a This would be a teen or small adult size. On a very small circular, they can be knitted up to the point of the crown reductions on one circular needle.
I use a long circular with the magic loop method at that point. You can also use two circular needles to achieve the same effect as double pointed needles. There are both pictorial and video tutorials for both methods. I am making a hate for my 6 month old but I am using yarn for.
A hat I just knit for myself. It is left over. I made a hat for myself on 8 in needles — circular- can I use ex same needles? It is the only one I own!! How many should I cast on? My baby has a bigger heAd…. I wanted to know if following the: I also prefer the K2Tog for decreasing, so where it says: Naturally I would simply sew the 2 sides together to join the beanie when done.
I agree that you would use the same k2, p2 pattern for both sides of flat knitting for the rib. You can use two K2tog instead of the SSK, just as you say, it would have a different look.
Thank you so much Mama! I only have a size 8 circular needle for this basic baby hat. How many stitches should I cast on for a newborn? Does this darling cap come in crochet and if so could I get it in premie, new born, and 6 mos.
Could you please send me the pattern or one close to it. Bonjour, If I cast on 72 what would my decrease be? Just follow the crown directions as written, repeating it around each round. You will repeat it 6 times across the round. Hi Mama, Would mind giving the number count after each decrease row for each size?
I love the ease of this pattern and would appreciate it greatly. Not everyone knits to the same gauge. On your finished hat you can measure 4 inches across and see how many stitches you have per 4 inches. I used a gauge of 22 stitches which is typical for a DK weight yarn on size 6 needles. I was just wondering if you had any suggestions for using 4ply instead of 8ply. I was hoping to make this hat to match the cardigans I am making for my son and niece and have been using 4ply on those and should have enough leftover for this project, too.
I would like to make this with size 5 needles for a newborn. What would you recommend I cast on? You should be fine following the pattern as written. So looking forward to making several of the patterns. Your lay out of your site is so inviting. Could you please be more specific about how many to put on each needle to make the pattern work?
Sorry for such a stupid question, but thanks in advance for any replies. If you are dividing between 3 needles, put 24 stitches on two of the needles and 36 on the other. If you are dividing between 4 needles, put 24 stitches on three of the needles and 12 on the other. I wanted to ask your thoughts on making a matching hat for a cardigan I just wrapped up.
The yarn is Cascade Sport, and the gauge lists at st. I want to do the newborn size for the hat…. Thank you for this pattern. It was just what I was looking for! Your instructions are great and I found it was nice and easy. This was also my first opportunity to try magic loop and I found that I really enjoyed the technique. The only thing is that at a few points in the ribbing the stitches are stretched out. Any advice on how to prevent that? Could it have been the cable I used?
The cable can contribute to that if it is stiff. I use Addi and Harmony circular needles which have very supple cables. It also just takes some practice getting the tension right a little tighter on the stitches right before and after the loops. Hello thank you for your pattern! I am making a lovely hat but as I am doing the decreasing and it is getting smaller, it is getting so tightly stretched on my circular needles it is really hard to knit!!
Am I doing something wrong? When you get to the crown where the decreases are made, you will need to shift to double pointed needles or some other method of knitting small circumferences in-the-round. Alternatively, you can start knitting back and forth and make a small seam in the crown.
I LOVE this baby hat. I just made it for my son that will be born in a few weeks. Thank you for posting the pattern. How many should I cast on with? How many rows should I knit the ribbing for and how high should I knit the hat? Is there anything else I should know that would be different when making this pattern for an adult?
I left a message for you but it seems to have disappeared. Would you please tell me how many to cast on and what size needles I should use? I made the infant hat and it is so cute! Thank you for the pattern. This is my first magic loop hat. I noticed in the ribbing that on either side where the loop is on one side is two knit rows side by side and on the other loop side is two purl rows side by side how did that happen and how do I fix that?
I generally advise to divide in multiples of 12 to make the crown reductions simpler, but dividing evenly for the ribbing and body is fine IF you then mark the first stitch of the round. At the loop that is not the first stitch of the round, continue the pattern from before the loop. It sounds like at the non-beginning loop, you began the pattern from the beginning of the row again.
I just finished this hat, it came out well. This hat came out a tad too big and fits my head and would be too large for any average baby. These were amazing instructions by the way! Sometimes your tension from method to method can differ and can make a difference in your gauge.
Hi, Just wanted to check if I will get the same pattern shown in the pic after the rib stitch if I just do knit. Or should I do purl to get that pattern? The pattern is written to be made in-the-round, so it is not turned after each row. When doing in-the-round, stockinette is made by knitting every round. Hi Thanks for the pattern! This is probably a stupid question but I am a new knitter so please forgive me!
I tried knitting this for a newborn and followed the pattern to the letter but when i finished the crown was tiny! Thanks in advance for any help!
Just realised my own stupidity.. This pattern is awesome by the way!!!!! I stupidly began knitting this pattern on circular needles with a cable just long enough for the main part of the hat, but I realize now that will cause problems when starting the crown. Should I somehow switch over to double pointed needles for the crown? You will need to switch to dpns or to a longer needle or needles for another method of knitting a small circular piece, such as the magic loop.
Alternatively you can split at this point purling the back rows and have a seam just in the crown. Thank you for the pattern! I started making the newborn size and saw immediately that it was way too big so I started over and made the preemie size. It was also huge. I am going to attempt to make another by starting with 48 cast on and knitting until 3. I think the hat I have right now would probably be like a 3 month-old size.
Gauge is really important. The cast on amounts and dimensions I give are for a gauge of 22 stitches per 4 inches. Hello, I was wondering if this pattern is stretchy. My toddlers head circumference is 18 in. Thank you for sharing your patterns. Can the baby caps be knitted with worsted weight yarn? How many stitches do I need to cast on?
Thank you for such a Helping Pattern. I am a beginner. Please help me regarding using 2 needles. If we are making a cap for new born with 72 cast on sts. Are you knitting flat with two needles?
Dividing the stitches in multiples of 12 is for knitting in-the-round. If you are knitting flat, then you will need to purl the back rows. I was just looking for dimensions and how many stitches to cast on and this worked out well. I used a slightly bulkier yarn so I actually cast on for the preemie size.
It is a good match for the newborn size. Knitwise means the way you insert the needle in a stitch to knit it. Purlwise is the way you would insert the needle in a stitch to purl it. I am making hats and scarves for all 5 of my grandsons,and hoping to get them done before the snow falls! I have one question,I want to make all their hats the same but the little guy needs some ear flaps.
Is it possible to add ear flaps to a pattern that does not call for them? Thank You, Susan Mooney. Most any hat that has a straight not rippled edge could take flaps. You could just use that portion of another pattern to add it.
You might give it a try. If the connecting cord between the needles is soft enough, it could work. The longer cord makes it less likely to lose the loop that is kept pulled out. I have made your hat before and love it. Now my darling grand is older and I would like to make the toddler size in a worsted weight yarn.
The yarn calls for size 8 needles…will it work? I love the decreases — such a cute top. I used 4mm but with worsted, so I did a 12 month size to fit my toddler grand. Thanks again — very generous. I started this hat and when I was finished with the ribbing I realized it was all twisted. So I undid it and started again, this time making sure all of my stitches were straight and lined up before I joined them.
And it happened again! Does anyone know what I did wrong?? Help because I am extremely frusterated and confused. I found this video that I hope is helpful: Thank you so much that helped a lot! Already on my second one!!! This is my second ever knitting project, first ever knitting in the round and using dpns.
It was easy to follow and turned out great! I only had size 8 needles so I used the 12 month sizing for my 2yr old and it turned out perfect.
I also added a couple color stripes. That size will be a little trickier, but I will describe how to do it. You will have a special set of rounds before beginning the regular crown rounds. If you have a PDF reader, there is a button at the top of each pattern that will create a pdf of the pattern. My first hat and first time using the Magic Loop technique.
This was my first project knitting in the round — thank you for the perfect project to learn on! I messed up the first round of decreases because I forgot to add the extra k4. Continue to ignore the extra knits k3, k2, k1 but knit an extra round between the decrease rows make the decreases every third row instead of every other row.
That will work out very similarly. Thank you for the lovely pattern! This was my sons favorite hat. The toddlersize is now too small for him, but the following size will be too big.
Continue with the pattern until the hat measures 6. Thanks for the pattern. I am using size 2 circulars, as the yarn is very fine. Just finished the hat using Bernat Baby Jacquard…absolutely darling! Here is a pattern that has an i-cord: The gauge is 6. How many stitches should I cast on? Thanks so much- Michelle.
I was just going through some hat patterns, when I came across your blog. I have a question. If I use the same pattern for a newborn ribbed hat, will it fit. Or do I have to cast on a different number of stitches? Also, do you mind if I sell the stuff I make with this pattern? Thank you again for this wonderful pattern. You can use the same cast on for a ribbed version. The finished hat will measure smaller but will be much stretchier so will still stretch to the same size as the stockinette version.
You can sell items you make with my patterns. At the bottom of the patterns is a link to my permissions document so that you can be assured that is my usual policy. HI, I am using a number 3 light yarn, how many stitches would I cast on for a 4 month old baby? I know you called for a DK weight. DK falls into the 3 light category so should be true to my measurements. The newborn size has growth room so should work for 4 months. I just learned so much by reading all these comments, thank you. My question is if you use different weight yarn how do you change the cast on.
I am new to knitting and knitting these for hospitals and charity. I have many different weight yarns just learned there is a number for each weight and a suggested needle size for each.
I based my hat on DK weight yarn which has a gauge of 22 stitches per 4 inches. If you wanted to make the newborn size, the original cast on is Here is the way to find the new cast on:.
Now we are not quite done. This pattern has cast ons that are a multiples of 12, so find the multiple of 12 closest to what you calculated, which in this case would be I love making the premier hats,they are so fun.
It has been awhile and I see some corrections have been added,my question is on the crown do you k3 or k4 then do the k2tog,ask? I am knitting your pattern on straight needles and got to the crown section, and was unclear about the decreases. Are you stating k4, k2tog, ssk K4 to mean you only knit 4 at the start of the row and knit 4 at the end of the row, with K2tog and ssk from end to end, or do you mean K4, k2tog, ssk knit four through out the entire row. The entire instruction is repeated across the row so that if you began with 60 stitches the row would look like this:.
Dear Mama, You are so patient to answer so many questions! What does the ssk look like? Is there a video to which you can point me? I found this video: Now I can go to town on using up my yarn shop quantity of the stuff.
Keep up the good work!!! I am knitting the newborn size with 72 stitches. I just started the first decrease row and I wound up with 54 stitches. I knitted 4 — knitted 2 together — slipped 2 and knitted together. Your pattern is such a nice simple pattern with a wonderful look. I want to finish it to send to my new granddaughter in Colorado.
There are 4 knits before and after the reductions on each repeat, so you will actually have 8 knits between them. So, k4, k2tog, ssk, k8, k2tog, ssk, k8… … k2tog, ssk, k4.
Just completed this on DPN and I loved the pattern. I can see the spaces on the finished hat where the stitches were divided on the three needles. I thought I was pulling tight on my stitches between the needles, but maybe not enough. Are there any other tricks to keep these seams from appearing? It really just takes some experimentation and practice. It does take pulling those end stitches a little tighter and after seeing the results a few times, you will get the sense of how much tighter they need to be.
This pattern is great! I have a question…when doing the actual body of the hat, before getting to the crown, it says for the newborn size to knit until it is 4. Is that including the ribbing, or is that just the knitted body section?
The yarn is 8 ply and the gauge tension is 22sts by 30 rows for 10x10cm. Also what should be changed throughout the pattern as well as the recommended length of the hat before the crown process? For straight needles, you will knit the body in stockinette. How many stitches should I cast on for a 6 month old? And how long should it be before the decrease? I casted on 84 stitches on straight needles and not sure how I should start my decreases.
No, just purl the back. You are just replacing the knit only rows of the crown with purl instead of knit. It is made in the round so by knitting every round it makes the hat stockinette rather than garter. Can this baby hat be knitted with circular needles all the way through?
I am wondering if it will be ok to do so. The body of it can be worked on a small circular needle, but the crown will get too small for it. The crown will either need to be made on double pointed needles, made using some other small circumference in-the-round method, or will have to be completed flat instead of in-the-round and seamed. For my big 10 month old, do you think I should be doing the 12 month or the toddler sizing? If I am using a size 7 circular needle, how many stitches should I cast on for a 12 month hat and does that alter the pattern in other ways?
It may not make a material difference. It really just depends on your tension. If you have a loose enough tension that your guage is less then you could cast on for the next smaller size, but use the measurements for the month. I want to make a hat for 6 year old boy. I assume by main page you are referring to Ravelry. I have now changed the Ravelry page. I just finished my first knitting project ever which was a baby hat. In those directions, it says for newborns, to Cast On 56 stitches.
By the time I was done, it seems like the perfect size for a newborn that will be welcomed into the family in a month. Since 56 stitches seems like a good amount to Cast On for a newborn hat, would this change how I would knit the crown? I want to make sure this second project that i have ever done will turn out perfectly! Sizing depends on the weight of the yarn and the size of the needles used.
If the pattern you refer to used heavier yarn and larger needles, then 56 stitches would be a newborn size. Knitted beanies of smaller sizes should be about an inch less than the circumference of the head since it will stretch to fit and stay on but not be too tight.
However, being so tired 10 months of very poor sleep I have made a mistake. I get little time to knit now so will be gutted to have completely ruined it. I have knit this hat several times for different babies in the family and now have need of it again.
I read through the comments this time and learned quite a bit in the process , but I just wanted to let you know that this is a fantastic pattern and you are incredibly gracious and generous with your time, knowledge, and patience.
Thank you for such a wonderful pattern! I was looking for a pattern to fit a very old doll. I picked it up the other day. Your knitted hat will work out great. I know I could never have tryed to create a pattern! Hi I have seen you have given permission to someone else to use this pattern to sell the finished items.
Would it be possible for me to also get permission. I sell on facebook, etsy and at craft fairs. I will of course credit you for this amazing pattern. You can sell items made with my patterns. Here is the complete policy: I need to make this hat for a baby that is now 3 months old.
Can you tell me how many stitches would be good to cast on. I have one ball of Bernat Softee Baby multi color which is yards. I would like to make the basic simple hat like the newborn one in knitting. To make a month size: Follow directions until you have 6. Make these two rounds before beginning the crown rounds in the instructions. It can be done other ways. Here is a link to an explanation of all the ways it can be done. Hello, I was wondering if it would make a huge difference having 5 mm double point needles instead of 4 mm?
It could actually make a pretty big difference unless you are a really tight knitter. You might need to make a size smaller than what you are wanting to make.
Now I cannot find that anywhere, but am wondering how wide to make my stripes! Can you help with cast on s and decreasing? There must be a formula for all this?? Begin crown when the body measures 4. And would the decreases have to be adjusted?? Thanks for some help, Mama. Before the working the crown, work these two rows which will then give you 60 stitches before beginning the crown:. End a tad shorter because you will be making two extra rows for the crown and also have taller rows with the bigger gauge for the crown therefore the crown will be a little taller.
Depending on your gauge it may be the same. Check your gauge and if it looks like you are going to get more stitches then you would need to cast on for size smaller. I have never knitted in the round before but decided to try this little hat. It is easy to do and very effective, was my daughters favourite hat for her baby. I used random wool like the pattern but in Autumn colours. It got lots of comments. I am now knitting my 4th one! The easiest way is to use heavier yarn and bigger needles.
Size 8 needles with worsted or aran yarn will give an small adult size with 84 cast on, medium adult size with 96 cast on and large adult size with cast on.
Make the body of the hat up to 1. This site is brilliant, used it a few months back for a baby hat. It took me all of last night to find it again, so glad I found it xx. I am knitting the newborn size and casted on 72 stitches. For the Crown, Rnd 1 says I should have 70 stitches after completing Rnd 1. I will only have 70 stitches if I K4, K2tog, ssk, k4 once and continue to knit and do not repeat. Is 70 stitches correct after completing Rnd 1 of the Crown or should it read 56 stitches after Rnd 1?
Newborn in the second size so is actually saying 60 stitches after the first round of the crown. Round one is repeated 6 times around the hat for a reduction of 12 stitches. Hi I would love to do this pattern in 4 ply for sizes Prem and months on size 3. Could you please tell me the cast on amounts for prem, newborn and months. Followed the directions in the middle of the comments for the 3 month old size.
Perhaps worsted weight should have been used. I used the dk called for and the 5mm 4needles. And I noticed in another pattern on revelry that they call for worsted weight for the same gauge and similar hat…. Worsted weight would actually make it bigger.
Also the gauge in the pattern is for 4mm needles so 5mm needles would make it bigger. I have never knitted before and am trying to make a premie hat. How long should the circular needles be? US 10 are for bulky yarn. To get the right gauge with my bulky yarn I ended up with 56 stitches for the teenage size, what would my decrease for the crown be?
Start with two rows before the other crown rows: Could you also direct me to where I can find help learning how to knit with two circular needles.
I have only ever knitted with dpns and am not feeling too confident about the magic loop. Casting on is the way that you begin your knitting by creating a row of loops on one of your needles. See How to Knit for step-by-step instructions for casting on. Cast on 60 loops if using 4mm needles more if the hat is not for a newborn. Hold your needles so that the left needle has the knitting on it, the needle points are facing away from you, and the yarn is leaving the needle to the right, on the bottom side of the needle.
Knit a 5 inch swath using a basic knit stitch. Hold the needle with the cast-on loops in your left hand and pass the needle in your right hand through the stitch and behind your left needle. Wrap a loop of yarn counter-clockwise around the right needle point. Pull the right needle off through the stitch on the left side, and push the top stitch off of the left needle. Each knit stitch will add one loop to the needle on the right and remove one from the needle on the left.
When you finish a row, change the needles to your other hands so that you start each row with the knitting on the left needle. Be sure your knitting trails to the right as you are knitting, towards the at first empty needle. Taper off for the top of the hat. After knitting for about 5 inches, begin to decrease the length of your knitting. Continue the 2-stitch decrease until you have only one loop left on your needle. Cut off your extra yarn. Be sure to leave yourself a nice long tail of yarn for sewing the sides of the hat together.
Tie the tail in a simple knot where it leaves the knitting before you begin to stitch with it. Sew the hat together. Use a large sewing needle or a bobby pin, sew the hat sides together. Weave the excess yarn in and out along the two sides. Tie off the end and cut off the remaining tail. Flip your hat inside out. Decide how you want to give your hat as a gift.
