  • Is it possible to use circular needles up to the crown of the hat. Then change to

    Do you have to use a long tail cast on? I generally use a knitted cast on? Does it make a difference. Mary

    • Hi Mary! The long tail cast on is stretchy, which is important to have at the base of the hat (because it would be terrible disappointing to knit the hat and not be able to get it on!!) I wouldn’t use the knitted cast on because I find my brims either don’t fit or are two tight.

      However, if you don’t like the long tail cast on if you google “stretchy cast on” there are a variety of other cast on methods that will work. The important part is that you need something that will stretch. 🙂
