Begin knitting with a possible beginner-level hat using Red Heart With Love or equivalent yarn. The pattern includes a photographic tutorial. My tutorial is also below to help you in video format.
Playfully, I call knitting the dark side of the force because I know how to crochet with my eyes closed. However, I have been teaching myself to know since September 11, 2022 and I am rocking it. I do a bit of practice almost daily to smoothen up my hands for teaching online.
The tutorial is designed for beginners.
Customization: If you prefer a beanie size to this hat, knit only 6″ before doing the shaping of the hat section.

- Designer: Laura Bain

- Needle Size on Pattern: 6 mm / US 10
