First Hat: Easy Cuffed Hat

Ellen will take you on your first hat adventure!

This will be a great class if you have yet to learn how to knit on circular needles and close a hat (or mitten or glove or sock) using double pointed needles.

The pattern is a free pattern from Purl SoHo and is written in three sizes (baby, child, adult) so all you need is wool and needles.

This sample knit by Theresa Schabes was fuzzed up by pairing a single strand of Kidsilk Haze with Malabrigo Rios. It gives a boost of warmth and a wonderful soft halo to the hat. By class time, our PomPoms will be replenished too or you can make a matching one with the expert help of Ellen!
