First off, I have actually been knitting since March. Hopefully I will get around to taking pictures & updating soon. My Ravelry page is pretty boring without pics of my works in progress. (I'm ssummerer by the way.)

At any rate, I got a question in the comments today about the hat I made for my sister-in-law last Christmas. Anonymous asked:

Can you please tell me how you knit the herringbone stitch in the round? in order to make the Christmas hat to match the "my so called scarf"
To be honest, I don't remember if I even knit the brim of the hat in the round. I don't think I did. I probably did some math to figure out how many stitches to cast on and then knit the brim of the hat flat. Once I had the brim the correct length, I most likely joined the two ends and knit the rest in the round in stockinette. I had previously knit some baby hats from Dale of Norway patterns that were done this way. When the hat is done, you just sew up the seam of the brim and it's good to go.

Of course, you could probably reverse the second row of the herringbone pattern so that it could be knit in the round. I just don't think I did.

Hope that helps!
