It’s the season to think about gifts to make and item to knit to keep yourself warm. Here is a hat that has a fun and complimentary globe shape. Fast and easy to make with chunky yarn and an easy knit and purl stitch. Inspired by the Harry Potter movies.
Knitting Tip: For a great way to join the hat in the round and avoid that lovely gap that is made when you knit the first stitch, try casting on one more stitch than you need, work the first stitch, then slip that extra cast on stitch over the first stitch worked. No more gap, just a nice smooth edge all the way around.
