WIP - basic hat on DPNs
Here's a hat I'm working on. Since I took this pic (I didn't get around to posting it, I've gotten about 4.5" past the end of the ribbing and I've only a few feet away from the end of the first skein.



The yarn is Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed Charcoal, #10 needles, and the basic hat pattern is from Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns.


You may note that my "right side" is on the inside of the "tube". I know I can flip it inside-out.. should I do that, and knit on the "outside"? Or do I continue as-is and flip it when I'm all done? (Or does it matter?)

Lookin good! I think its pretty much preferance and what works best for you as far as if you keep the inside out, etc. Go with what works for you. I do mine the otherway with the outside facing just cause I like to see how its coming alot as a whole, but really, from what I understand its a personal preference. Keep up the good work!

I think at this point I'd just continue and flip it after, but I'm not sure. It's looking good though!

It is looking great ...I like that yarn and the color...haven't seen that before...I think it's pretty much up to you and what you feel comfy with... you are doing good how it is now so if it were me I'd prolly just leave it...

ALMOST FO!
Well, here it is... almost.....



I don't have a needle to sew off the top with! Otherwise it's done.



It's my first completed piece.. I did a couple proto-scarves to practice, but I abandoned them in favor of something I could finish faster.

You don't need a needle to sew up the top. You can pull a short tail through the sts on your needle by using your other needle. Insert like you're going to knit, but pull the tail all the way through.
