Many projects that you make with needlebinding can start with a circle whether they are socks, a sweater or a pair of mittens. Knitting socks is done with cicelcular needles, or with 3 or 4 needles, the great thing about needlebinding is that you only need One Needle

This is the start of needlebinding of a row of 13 stitches with an extra long tail. You can also set up with more stitches, the hat is going to be bigger.

Make the needle on the long tail thread through the lower loops of the stitches.

Closed the circle and made two stiches.

The first round make the circle larger by increasing every stitch. After the first round you attach a stitch marker so that you know when a round starts and ends. The 2nd round, one stitch normal and the 2nd stitch increase. The 3nd round, two stitches normal and the 3nd stitch increase. The 4nd round three stitches normal and the 4nd increase. The 5nd round four stitches normal and the 5nd increase. The 6nd round five stitches normal and the 6nd increase.

Now just measure the diameter, is it 21 cm (for my head the circumference is 56.5 cm than : The 7nd round just needlebinding, do not increase or decrease. After this round you are going decrease stitches.

The 8nd round five stitches normal and the 6nd decrease. The 9nd round four stitches normal and the 5nd decrease. The 10nd round three stitches normal and the 4nd decrease and measure and finish the edge. How to finish the hat see picture chapter increase and decrease.

If you want to make a bigger hat start with a longer row stitches in the beginning when you make the circel (magic loop they called it with crochet).
