at my high school, there is a knitting club and as the president (ha) i thought the products knitted could be donated, right? right. well we decided to make hats, but no one has circulars and when i tried to show them how to join in a round, they flipped and went on about garter stitch. blah!

so i was wondering if anyone had a flat hat pattern that can be sewn up the back? super easy peasy? something with needles on the large size too.

yes, thank you so much.

Show them www.knittinghelp.com videos.  They need to see it's not that hard or scary!

Pretty much any pattern can be converted to flat by reversing instructions for even rows & the seaming up the back for the stubborn ones. Smiley

There is one in the Stitch 'N Bitch The Knitter's Handbook. It's really easy, in the book the switch colors, but you can do it in solids, with no problem.

You can preview the books on www.knithappens.com

Knitty Gritty on DIY network did a whole show about charity knitting.  Here is the link to the newborn hats that they made on straight needles: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4826209,00.html .  They seem really easy and very cute.  There are also some other great ideas on that episode as well-make sure you check them out!

also, there is the baby pixie hat on www.straw.com- it's a good exercice in knit and purl, and it's a flat hat that is seamed at the end.

Kody may posts some of her patterns as flat. http://kodymayknits.blogspot.com/
the can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, but some of them are quite good for beginners- the (seed stitch and sister in law hat) and would be kind of easy to convert to flat.

You can just knit it the same but instead of joining in the round, go back and forth on straight needles, then a tthe top, draw it up like on circs/dpns, then just sew down the back!
I think circs are easier than straights!!!

Here's an easy one - http://tiajudy.com/babycable.htm - just leave out the cable part and do the whole thing in garter stitch.

Try www.knittingpatterncentral.com  or www.bevscountrycottage.com .  Both have tons of patterns sorted by type (hats, blankets, etc) .  It might take some digging but I'm sure you would find a few there.
Good luck  Smiley

Bah! Why be in a club if you dont want to learn new things? slap em around!
no, seriously, tell them that all it takes is a little courage to try and some how to. I second the video suggestion.
