I am trying to knit my 1st hat on circular needles. The pattern I'm using is http://tiajudy.com/simplestcap.htm
I am using size 8 with worsted yarn. Do I have to do a long tail CO to start a hat? The pattern doesn't specify, but when I watch the video on how to knit in the round, it looks like she has used the long tail CO. I knit English style and have only learned use the Cable CO. Thanks for any advice.
