About Circular Knit Lab: Hats Four Ways:
Published author and well-loved knitwear designer Stefanie Japel shares her "purls" of wisdom with you as she teaches you to knit three unique styles of hats. Circular Knit Lab begins with essential information about circular needles and knitting in the round, including choosing supplies and creating the perfect circumference for any size head. Then Stefanie walks you through hat-making from start to finish with her friendly approach and ever-present enthusiasm for teaching and knitting.

Learn how to increase and decrease in the round, how to make cool stripes or cables, along with ribbing, blocking, making jogless joins, and adding fun embellishments like embroidery, pompoms and tassels to your custom-fit hats. You'll learn to knit hats using four different circular needle techniques. At the end of the course you'll have three brand-new, homemade hats to wear or give as gifts.
