To start off the new year we spotlight one of our favourite go-to first-project, and give a couple other project and yarn suggestions for those early in their knitting adventure. The Super Easy Knit Ribbed Hat by CJ Designs is made with a quick knitting bulky weight yarn offering the opportunity to learn how to practice your knit and purl in the round; and if you wish includes the added challenge of knitting on double pointed needles (though it could be done on a 16-inch circular to avoid this additional new technique). It is knit in a tube and is singed to a point at the end avoiding the need to learn how to decrease, and also allowing it to be a perfect floppy toque. And all this comes with a free detailed step-by-step Youtube video instructions to walk you through the pattern!
Uses one ball of Estelle Bulky & US15 16inch circular needles
