Short Row Shaping Hat
Intermediate | 30 min 55 sec
Afraid to knit in the round? Jill’s hat is knit sideways on two needles with one seam so you can start making hats on straight needles. This project uses short row shaping - a technique that sounds intimidating but really it's just a way to shape wedges by not knitting to the end of your knitting. Jill shows you how to create those wedges that you then graft together for a quick-to-knit hat that can be worked up on smaller or larger needles (with matching yarn) to adjust the size.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • PDF pattern for Sideways Superstar Hat
  • size US 10 straight or circular needles
  • waste yarn
  • stitch marker
  • 130 yards chunky weight yarn
Learn how to:
  • Work short row shaping
  • Wrap and turn
  • Work a provisional cast-on
  • Work a Kitchener stitch

What you’ll get:
  • A detailed lesson on how to make a short row shaping hat
  • 7 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Detailed supply list
  • Step-by-step expert instruction from instructor Jill Draper
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students
