Caleb modeling a cold weather hat that I knitted. This was supposed to be Kevin's, but it was too small. I knitted it in the round with my size 10, 29" long needles. Then switched to double pointed needles as I closed up the top. I knitted one row and then purled the next (well, except for a couple places where I did the wrong one). A friend of mine recommended the magic loop method so I could use my too long needles, it worked quite well. You can watch a video here. The reason the hat was too small is because I decided that 8 inches was too much before starting to close the top, so I only did 6. It looked so big, until it was finished and I tried it on! Next time I will follow the directions!
