I Want To Knit A Hat Now. How Do You Knit A Hat? Is It Hard?

I am embracing knitting. I knitted another dishcloth on the weekend. I also got myself a darling little knitting basket. And I've found a monthly knitting group at a very cute yarn place. I stopped in once and it was very pornish.

So, seriously. Does anyone know any good easy beginner hat patterns?

I really recommend the Yarn Harlot's book "Knitting rules" - it's got lots of basic patterns for socks, hats, scarves, etc, and lots of handy tips. The book is so worth the price becuase it's actually useful, not just funny like her other books.

A friend of mine knit her first hat from a pattern in that book. Easy, easy.

Oh, nice job on the dishcloth! I'm sure you can master a hat! I must finish my dishcloth. It's time to move on to something else.
