    I only knit with two needles what size would they be in uk size

      Hello, according to my conversion chart, 9mm needles are US13, and UK00. Hope that helps!

    Such a nice looking hat! What size approximately does it make? Would it fit an 8 year old? Was thinking about making it for my son.

      These hats fit many ages, very stretchy when made with Lion Brand thick and quick. You might want to reduce by 4-6 sts in the round, make the ribbed rows then have him try on before going all the way to see if it works for his head. My little nephew wears this size, and looking at him, I’d go 4-6 sts less to make it a little tighter fit. Good luck!

    Love your hat patterns. Made many for gifts for Christmas. I am now going to make one for hm myself.

    Thank you for the pattern! Do you use smaller whole or needles for color #1? I used same size for all 3 colors but the bottom looks big, not the same effect as the picture.

    Thanks

      Hi, yes, I used the same needles all the way through.

    Hey there, the yarn I’m using requires me to use smaller needles (8mm) so I’m having trouble with how many stitches I should be using. I tried googling for help and gauge came up and I don’t see it listed here. I’m very much a basic knitter so I’m not sure how to translate this to smaller needles & yarn, any suggestions are welcome. Thank you for your help!

      Hello, with 8mm needles, I’d start with 48 sts cast on, at minimum. I often use 8mm 9mm or 10mm even when the yarn says smaller. I have a 23in circumference head (average is 22-24 around) and 40-48 sts on any of the sizes fit my head – 40 is a little tighter, 48 a bit looser. As a beginner, I’m glad you’re here. This is how I started, making many many hats 🥰

    Good morning Beccie I would like to know if I’m able to knit this hat on straight needles. Thank you Sue

      Hello Sue, I’ve never done so but a few comments on here lead me to believe others have successfully knit on straight needles, then seamed after. Good luck! ~Beccie B

I'd love to hear from you, comments or questions are welcome!
