hat called Folk Art for your Head?
I found this pattern on Ravelry, but don't know how to communicate with Ravelry.....so I now have the pattern, but it's a basic rolled brim hat, all stockinette, knit in the round....BUT: it says to use TWO circular needles, cast on 90 stitches, then move half to the second needle. WHY?

I have knit hats on one circ before, can't imagine how to do this....why two needles? anyone...???

TIA!

Knitting with two circular needles is just another method of knitting in the round. I think there are instructions in the video section...maybe under advanced techniques. I learned this way before I learned magic loop.

If you are familiar with another method and prefer it you should be able to do the pattern anyway. I never use a 16" anymore because I don't want to have to transfer stitches to another method for the crown.
