Hi!

I have only been knitting a few weeks, but am tired of just knitting a scarf. I only know basic knit/purl, cast on and cast off.

I would like a simple hat pattern with clear instructions. I prefer to use straight needles or dpn (as that is what I have available).

Can someone guide me?!

Thanks!

Here's a link where someone asked the same question. There are a bunch of 2 needle hats linked here. ;)

Eventually you'll want to make a seamless hat. To knit a hat seamless you'll need to use either DPNs, two circular needles, one long circular needle for Magic Loop, or a 16 in circular needle. These methods are all explained in the videos at the tab at the top of the page.

Is this an adult hat or child's hat? If you are doing an adult hat there will be quite a few stitches on each needle, but it's not impossible. Here are some basic hat patterns.
