Want to learn a few more knitting tricks? Wondering how to use those needles connected with a cord? Learning to knit a hat in the round is a great way to level up your skills on a small and fun project.


  • Session 1: casting on, joining to work in the round, knitting in a rib.
  • Your homework during the week will be to knit the main part of the hat to get to where you're ready to start decreasing!
  • Session 2: decreasing, switching to double pointed needles or magic loop, finishing the hat!

Charlotte (she/her)

A stockinette or ribbed beanie.

Pattern will be provided in the first class.

Advanced Beginner. If you know everything in the required experience section below, you know enough to take this class! You can read about how we determine skill levels here.

You should be very comfortable with casting on (preferably the long tail cast on), and the knit stitch to take this class. Knowing how to purl is a big plus, too, but not required!

How to join knitting to work in the round, how to use stitch markers, knitting & purling in the same row to make a rib, using double pointed needles or the magic loop method, and a few decrease stitches.

REQUIRED YARN - available for purchase at the shop
You can use sport, DK, worsted, or bulky yarn for this class. See chart below for the required amount of each weight of yarn. Note that using a smaller yarn will mean you'll be knitting more stitches, therefore it may take longer to finish your hat (and to finish the required homework between classes). We can help you pick out yarn at the beginning of the first class!

REQUIRED TOOLS - available for purchase at the shop
You'll need two sets of needles to make a hat: 16" circular needles (for the main part of the hat), and either 32" circular needles or double pointed needles (for the top of the crown). Refer to the chart below to find the correct size needles for the yarn you're using. (We can also help you pick out the right needles at the beginning of the first class.)

Yarn Weight Needle Size Yardage
Sport (weight 2) US 4 / 3.5 mm 185 yards
DK (weight 3) US 7 / 4.5 mm 175 yards
Worsted (weight 4) US 8 / 5 mm 160 yards
Bulky (weight 5) US 10.5 / 6.5 mm
