Class Details:

Make a hat for any head, with any yarn in your stash. We’ll teach you how to work a top-down hat to fit any head, without a swatch! We’ll show you how to customize the style and fit—work to the length you want, make it slouchy or fitted, fold-over cuff or beanie-style, add custom ribbings and cuff patterns, work with different colors. Whether you want to make a quick gift or use up your stash, or free yourself from patterns, this class will make you a better and more powerful hat knitter.

Homework:

None

Supplies for Class:

Know the circumference measurement of the head you want to fit; any yarn you want to use and the following needles: DPNs and 16 inch circular in the size recommended for the yarn, removable and standard stitch markers. For fingering weight/sock yarn, you need approximately 300m, for bring 250m, for worsted weight or thicker, 150m.

To complete the project students will also need: a 16 inch circular 2 sizes smaller than the working needle. Also have a stitch marker, scrap yarn in a similar weight and a blunt-ended darning needle.
