Tips and Tricks from Heidi

  1. Bulky is Good: Heidi highly recommends using bulky knitting needles and bulky yarn. This will help to make your gauge bigger and get through the project faster.

  2. Don't Complicate It: You will be able to easily blow through a hat pattern in just one hour the easier you make it. Picking an easy to remember stitch like ribbing will make it that much easier to finish this hat up really quick. 

  3. Try Magic Loop: Heidi also mentions how using the magic loop method can make it really easy to work quickly while you are working through your pattern.
