Hat pattern--NO CIRCLE KNITTING!
So, my dilemna is this. I'm looking for an easy hat pattern that does not require circle needles. The only one that I have ever seen is from a Klutz book--it has you follow a pattern and then sew up the side. However, i can't seem to get a hold of that particular pattern, so I'm stuck. I've never made anything more difficult than a flat piece, but I am quite familiar with decreasing and increasing.

Thanks in advance!

Most people prefer hats w/o seams so that is why two needle hats are hard to find. Here's one -

Try this one from Coats and Clark. It has all sizes from Infant to Adult and is knitted flat. Gotcha Covered #1

You'll need Adobe Reader to view and download the pattern since it is in .pdf format.

I have a book with 2 needle hats for toddler to young teen sizes. I only have size 1 circs right now for socks, so these are the only hats I can do.

I was going to suggest http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/...+Covered+1.htm -- but yarnrainbow beat me to it . This is a great, great hat pattern, and not only does it have every size, it has every yarn weight.

It's a nice two needle hat, but I think life changing is a bit of a stretch.

Thanks for some good pattern ideas
Hi, I'm a new member. Restarted knitting recently after a 20-some year absence. Now I'm teaching my daughter-in-law to knit and she needed a nice, easy hat to go with the several scarves she's made this week. We're excited to try one of these patterns. Thanks!

Several scarves in one WEEK? I'm impressed. I hate scarves (easily bored and I don't know how anyone can stand to wear them - I love a breeze on my neck).
Might I ask why you don't want a circular pattern? Do you dislike it, not own circular needles or dpns, or just trying to get more comfortable knitting flat before you try?
Another thing to note: depending on the pattern, if you see a pattern you like that is written in the round, I or someone else on here might be able to rewrite it for knitting flat (I've gone the other way a couple of times, knitting things in the round that are written flat, so I should be able to handle the transfer).
Try www.headhuggers.com . I believe the flame hat is written to be worked flat, so if you just ignore the intarsia and work straight for that many rows, you should be good.
