I LOVE this hat! I really want to try it (I got SnBN yesterday) but I'm a little wary of the thousands of needle sizes and types it calls for. Is there any way I can fudge that? I can't afford too many new needles.
You only need 2 sets of needles if you use dpns, a 5mm and 6.5 mm (or whatever that is in american size) Im a way to cheap to buy all those pointless circulars even is circs are nicer to use than dpns LOL
But you really do need the 2 sizes, for my first one I misread and done the whole thing in 5mm LOL it turned out tiny (luckily the colour didnt suit me anyway so even if it turned out right I wouldnt have worn it)
But this is a great pattern I love my (2nd) hat (I done mine in green ) and always get compliments on it
i think i'm going to go out and get these two sets of dpns, however i'm still somewhat new to using dpn's and i'm not sure how to adjust the pattern so they work. any tips?
