I am very new to knitting - I have made 2 scarves thus far and would like to try this hat. http://knit-a-gogo.com/blog/?p=31
It seems fairly simple but I have a couple of questions -
1. can this be worked on circulars and then switch to dpns? I haven't tried dpns yet, but might as well learn!
2. why don't you join the yarn in the beginning? Is there a button hole created with the pattern? That part confuses me!
3. I haven't made a hat yet, this sounds confusing -
Cut yarn and thread through remaining sts.
will the hat be closed at the top by this point?
