My circular needles were to long. I'll have to wait until after the holidays to knit a hat.

YouTube has some great videos that could teach you how to do the Magic Loop for knitting-in-the-round with a long circular needle.  I don't even own DPN's (maybe that was why I got the gaps in my hat.)

I am ready to go on double point needles for a hat for my grandson.  Black base, but I didn't have self-striping yarn so I used a multicolor alternating with a solid that is in it - in a fibonacci sequence pattern - 3-3-2-2-1-1.  Looks great.  Hope I have time to block it before I have to wrap it.

Can you estimate how many yards of yarn are needed for each color?  I have two small skeins, 87 yards each color, and do not know if they will be enough.

I absolutely love your hat and was very touched by the story that went with it! Fabulous work.

Thanks for the share!

I wonder if you are still working on this KAL. I have knitted this hat this past month and did not do it justice. I would like to try again, and I was about to do it on my own, but seeing that it was a KAL, I would much prefer to knit it and be able to ask questions along the way. I just watched Eunny's jogless stripe video and she had a different way of doing it than Jared's video.  Nice to know that there is more than one way and can try each and see which works better for any knitter.   I will wait to hear a reply to see if this KAL before starting. Thank you.
