Look at the videos under advanced techniques at knittinghelp.com - that should help you get started. There's plenty over at YouTube too.

I'm knew to knitting, I've probably been doing it for about 4 months now, do you think I would be able to make a slouchy hat and is it easier to use dpn's or circulars?

You'll never figure it out if you don't try. I find circulars easier, especially to start, but you might need dpns anyway to finish up. Unless you use longer ones with the magic loop technique for starting and finishing.

Soozeq thanks for the info, I'm going to buy a set of circulars and a set of dpn's and try both, if I fudge up I'll just frog it  Grin.

Tell you what.... take some leftover yarn and practice with the circular and the dpns first, get used to knitting in the round. Then tackle your hat. A hint - 16" circs are better for hats.

anyone still doing this... I just got started   Wink

could only find #8 dpn's so going to use those throughout the hat.  will it make too much of a difference do you think?

the yarn I've picked seems to be close in weight (grams / yards) to the yarn she used in the le slouch hat. 

Wish me luck.  I'll post more questions if I think of any and photos if it turns out ok.

It's been a very long time since I've knitted anything and I've missed it to much Cry.  So as my way of coming back I thought I'd give this hat a try  Cheesy.  Here is my progress (sorry for the messy pictures).  I started knitting this hat 2 days ago.

Ugh it shows I haven't knitted something in a long time. I had to unravel mine. When it came time to decrease my stitches were of.  I was reading the pattern wrong all this time!!!!!!  Ughhhhhhhhh I made such a simple mistake.  But I started it back up last night, so now I'm on the ribbing section  Sad.  I'm glad this pattern is pretty quick so hopefully I'll be back up to where I was in the next few days.

caramelo,

I think you and I are "sisters from another mother"...   

I got to where I was going to increase and realized that some where in my going round and round in circles I'd started going backwards somewhere...  so it was longer /higher on 1 side than the other by at least 2 rounds.

So I pulled all mine out and started again too...   Cheesy
