Finishing the Hat, part 1

Here's the penultimate video in this hat series.  I made two this morning, but to avoid frustration, I'll post the second one tomorrow!

One thing I'm not sure I made clear is that depending on the number of stitches in your project, after a decrease round or two you may have to rearrange your stitches so that you again have an even number of stitches on each needle.  I find it easier to do this before working a round, but you can do it as you go along too.

  1. You go, Gail. I like that pop of green on your lovely wooden table. XX

    1. That's a Montessori trick - a mat to highlight what's being shown in the lesson! Once a Montessorian, always a Montessorian! Also, this yarn is just about the same color as my table, so I pretty much had to put something under the hat or it wouldn't show!

  2. I love your knitting videos. It's so strange to me to see someone knit with the yarn in their left hand like you do. I hold my working yarn in my right hand and kind of throw it round the end of the needle.

    1. Thanks, Sam! I always think it looks strange to see anyone knitting, just because it looks backwards! That is, I'm so used to seeing the work from my own angle, not from the back!
