VERY EASY. However, it requires 16" circs for the cast on and the first 10" or so...and finally, after the stitches are decreased to the point that you can't knit in-the-round any further, you must have a set of at least 4 dpn's to finish off the top of the hat. It's not hard, but you have to be able to master knitting from one dpn to another, juggling your stitches on 4 dpn's. I am clumsy at it, but I get it done!

I think Amy must have an excellent video clip for it here under ADVANCED TECHNIQUES or TIPS for knitting in the round on circs and/or dpn's. The sooner you learn it, the better. Just like mattress seaming. Ya just gotta bite the bullet and learn it!
