One of my siblings has a birthday coming up fast, and I decided to make her a hat. Pattern:
1. Cast on 30-75 stitches onto double-pointed needles. Depending on who you're making the hat for you will need more or less stitches than the 50 I used..
2. Knit until you think it's ready to start binding of a stitch or two every row.
3. Bind off completely when you're done. Then sew the tope together.
And you've made a hat! No, I'm not kidding, that's the pattern....................
