Need directions on how to knit? I have found great toutorials on YouTube - search for "knitting in the round", "long tail cast on", "binding off", "knit joining in the round" or any other keywords used below for great videos on how to knit - for this reason step by step pictures are not included below.
- Size 7 or 9 - 16 inch circular needles
- Set of double pointed needles (DPN)
- 1 skein worsted weight orange yarn
- Green yarn for closing
SIZING: This pattern can be adapted for larger or smaller heads, cast on number of stitches and knit for desired size:
0-6 months: CO 48, 5"
6-12 months: CO 56, 5 1/2"
1-2 years: CO 64, 6"
2 years and up: CO 72, 6 1/2"
- With main color, loosely CO desired number of stitches per size, above. Cast on one extra to join. Slip one stitch from the right hand to the left hand needle, being careful not to twist. Knit the first two stitches together. Place a marker and begin knitting in the round (knit every row).
