    I am a brand new knitter. I am looking for a beginner knit child’s messy bun hat with simple stitches. I can knit stich and purl. I’m having trouble with knitting one stitch and purling the next stitch like a seed stitch. If you have a easy patterns I’d be grateful. Thank you

    Nice list and explanations. You will find the nice thing about circular needles is you can rest the weight of a large project in your lap and it takes stress off your hands and arms. I highly recommend a nice set of interchangeable circulars; much more cost efficient in the long run as you can select a needle size and cable length as your project calls for. I bought an inexpensive Needlemaster about 15 years ago and love it. I have recently added Chia Goo cables as they are very flexible. Also, Vickie Howell has a great demo of how to use those oddly shaped green knitting needles. Apparently they make the process of circular knitting easier. I have not tried them; I use double pointed needles for things like socks and hats. I have knit for over 50 years and crocheted for over 40. I really appreciate that you are taking the time to delve into knitting and are providing detailed information to those who want to learn just as you do with all your crochet tutorials. I look forward to witnessing your journey. Much love to you and the rest of the crowd.
