Hi everyone..

I've been knitting a total of 2 weeks and I'm so hooked !

I've recently finished my first scarf and now I'm ready to try something different .. I wanted to try a hat but I've yet to learn knitting with the circular needles and honestly I've looked at the patterns and stuff and it scares me .. I dont think I'll ever be able to master that LOL

Is there a pattern I can do on straight needles for a simple hat I love the rolled brim one and also .. a pattern for a wrap .. I thought perhaps I could make one for Mothers day but every pattern I see for a wrap is on circular needles

Anyways ..love the forum and I cant tell you how much the videos and stuff have helped this novice knitter!

Thanks

A wrap is an oversized scarf and they're knitted flat on circulars so the needles will hold more stitches than straight needles, and because a large piece gets heavy and circs will allow it to rest in your lap more. To knit flat on a circ, just pretend the cord is a stitch holder, which it is because you're just using the tips to knit. When you get to the end of the row, turn it like you would a straight needle, pick up the other tip and knit back.

One more thing.... Welcome!

See we're sneaky that way.... Get you to knit something flat with circulars so you get used to them, then you can graduate to knitting in the round! Mwahahahahahaaa....
