I am going to do this pattern but I needed some help.
Felted hat: http://webhome.idirect.com/%7Equanah/patfelthat.html
1. I've never worked with double DPN and I'm a novice at knitting. I was wondering what "join the knitting" means in these directions of the pattern?
"With dpn's and TWO strands of wool, cast on 6 sts. Being careful not to twist stitches, join the knitting."
2. When it says "Inc in each stitch around", what type of increase am I supposed to use for a hat? (I knit continental, not english if that makes a difference)
3. And if this increase is being done on DPN, how do you do that?
4. And when I change to circular needles an I starting to knit in the round?
Thanks in advance or the help. I rally have no idea what I'm trying to do here but I'm at least trying.
