I'm going to try making a hat for my husband like this. Did you use an extra yarn for the provisional cast on or a cable needle? I'm not sure I understand having to knit into the back of the stitch, but that is only when I start knitting the second hat right?

I used the provisional cast on where I crochet a chain with waste yarn and then knit into the back of the crochet chain. There's a loop there that I put my needle in to pick up stitches. When it's time to attach the second hat, you take out the waste yarn and insert your needle into the live stitches.

You can do any provisional cast on, I just prefer this one.

Okay. I've never done one at all so I'll have to experiment.

You knit in the back of the crochet chain, not when you do it on the needle. I didn't know how to explain that well enough. Leave it to Rebecca to have a link.

I didn't until you posted that way. I had always just crocheted a chain and picked up stitches on it. Your way makes more sense. I did it for the Karaoke scarf, but had trouble getting the stitches off. I'll have to check out the video.

I'll check out the link, thanks!
