Is there any issue that comes up knitting this with circulars? Trying to seam really heavy yarns often comes up lumpy for me.

It seems like you should be able to, but I tried it and it does not work. The recommended yarn is actually a #7 jumbo weight yarn, it appears soft and flexible coming off the skein, but it becomes stiff and tight working it in the round and does not look good at all.

This pattern is great for beginner knitters. I knit hats for charity so this pattern will come in handy. It gives the different sizes as well. It works up quickly with the bulky yarn which gives it a nice detail. Thank you.

This stocking knit hat works up so fast. I've read it through and the pattern is very easy. You know, sometimes we just want to knit with our straight needles for some good back and forth knitting. Beginners, you will LOVE this hat. Using (6) Super Chunky (Bulky) should make this go lickity split just check the yardage on your skeins to make sure you have enough. Pom Pon tutorials are on the internet and this site and they are super easy to make, too. As well as finishing techniques. Watch some tutorials and try a new method for the back seam.

I tried this craft and i wasnt disappointed! I made three within two days. I did make a few adjustments to accomidate smaller needles, but they turbed out awesome! my fiance loves them to!
