Where your pattern says Shape top, changing to set of 4 double pointed needles where appropriate. What does this mean? I'm new. Also do I have to buy the circular and double pointed needles in both sizes? Is there a video on someone making this? It would be a lot easier to follow along and learn that way or a class?

Can the Chic City Hat be done with straight knitting needles?
