Learn how to join your knitting in the rounds to knit hats. This technique is a simple and easy way to join knitting with cable needles.
To knit beanies or hats we need to knit in the round. This means we’ll knit around and around in a circle.
If you use straight needles to primarily knit flat, then eventually you’ll need to learn how to knit in the round.
You can knit in the round with either DPNs (double pointed needles) or with cable needles (knitting needles attached to cables with the needles at either end).
Like most knitting techniques there are various ways to knit in the round. Here I’m going to show you how I join to knit in the round with cable needles.

For this tutorial I’m knitting with Red Heart With Love in the color Cameo. It’s such a pretty purply pink.
This is a nice soft #4 medium worsted weight yarn from Red Heart. You can use any yarn for this technique if you’re just practicing.
