Instructor: Kate Atherley
Make a hat for any head, with any yarn in your stash.
We’ll teach you how to work a top-down hat to fit any head, without a swatch!
We’ll show you how to customize the style and fit – work to the length you want, make it slouchy or fitted, fold-over cuff or beanie-style, add custom ribbings and cuff patterns, work with different colours.
Whether you want to make a quick gift or use up your stash, or free yourself from patterns, this class will make you a better and more powerful hat knitter.
Skill Level:Suitable for knitters who have experience working in the round.
