Knitting a hat seems easy enough, and why not keep it simple with an alternating knit and purl stitch? After watching YouTube tutorials on how to cast the yarn on your needles for an hour, it’s safe to say you’ll start to feel pretty confident in knitting a hat. That is until you forget which side was purl and which side was knit and then all of a sudden there are holes?? And now the pattern is all fucked up? This was a horrible idea for a new hobby!
