    Hi everyone,
    I am presently on a project to knit hats/beanies for cancer patients. The stitches that are sent to us are ideal for knitting beanies/hats quickly. I am using a basic plain pattern and adapting this according to the number of stitches from the pattern. Any advice from ‘seasoned knitters’?

    Thanks
    Brenda

      Just make sure you adapt the patterns for knitting in the round.
