Do you think size 9 DPN's with a worsted weight yarn be a cozy hat? And how many stitches should I cast on??

Jenelle, this is the basic hat pattern that I and several others use. You can use any size yarn and needles. I know my basic hat pattern pretty much by heart now. Once you make a couple then it becomes easy to go off on your own a bit or do other patterns. At least for me it was.

If you want to try something a bit easier, just to get your feet wet, I used this method. It's easy and hilarious.

Yes.... easy AND hilarious :rofling:

but the problem is getting 16in circulars and DPN's... I made my DPN's with chop sticks from a resturaunt :P Everytime I go to Joann's. they are sold out!!!! :( I never get there fast enough to grab em, and usually the only size they have I think is 0000's... and I don't really want to work with them(honest).

Any other solutions? I hate seaming hats :(

Jenelle --

One of our KH members -- Carol_OH -- has a company called TaraKnit where she collects used needles from wherever, and then re-sells them. She has nearly every size you can image in DPNs, and probably in circs, too.

Do you think your Mom would be OK w/ you ordering from Carol online? I know many people on here have, and her service and reliability are quite good.

Jan --

I've noticed lately that most of the time my posts are shorter than my sig. Is that bad?

As long as we can go through paypal to pay. My mom doesn't like using money orders or any other way like that because she doesn't trust the person. I don't blame her really. You hear stories and stuff on the news about that kind of stuff sometimes and it scares her

If it helps any at all, I've placed many orders for stuff through the Internet. As long as you shop at well-known, reputable vendors, you should be OK. I think Carol qualifies in that category, too! And I believe she *does* use PayPal.

Good luck finding the needles you need!!
