I am a total NOOB when it comes to knitting as I usually crochet. I have some straight needles from when I learned to knit when I was a kid. I want to make a hat. Like this.http://tiajudy.com/ribcaps.htm
I'm confused as to which needles I would be using. Would I be using straight or circular needles? I didn't even know there were circular needles until I started looking into knitting again. I always see people with straight needles going unbelievably fast. Any help is much appreciated.
