Hi there, welcome to our corner of the knitting world! We're a little more like your LYS while Ravelry is like a knitting convention, it's a little cozier here. Look forward to seeing your other posts.

Hi all, my name is CC and even though I learned to knit when I was a very young child (I'm a grandma now) I had never followed a pattern or completed a project until a few months ago. My daughter joined a knitting group last fall and asked me to take one night off from being the 'designated babysitter' to go along because she thought I would enjoy it. Did I ever.

This was one of the first sites I found, where I learned to cast on, and where I learned how to increase, decrease, knit with dpn's, use circulars, magic loop and the resource that finally answered the mystery as to why all those gauge swatches I had knit flat were different than when I used circulars.

Thanks for such a great site and for all the work that must have gone into the videos and answering the questions newer knitters would have.

See....I should have joined this forum months ago because that one link would have saved me tons of time! But hey at least I have a nicely compiled list of my family members' head sizes and a journal of my tensions with different yarns, needles sizes and stitches lol

Thanks again for this great site and for the forum that I somehow managed to overlook while I was literally glued to the videos.

Hi marieandtom. This might be seen by more people in a separate thread in General Knitting or How To. Just click on the Orange 'Start a new Thread' button.

But mostly it just takes practice to get the tension right with sts that are not too loose or too tight. With holes, you may be dropping stitches or accidentally wrapping the yarn around the needle and making a stitch, so count and see if you're adding stitches or losing them. A yarn over is done on purpose in lace knitting, but not something you want otherwise.

Here are two beanie patterns for you.

These don't cover the ears completely. You might want to knit an extra inch in length, just so you know. Welcome. This is a very friendly place.
