US #13 (9.0mm) circular; you may want DPNs for crown shaping

This gorgeous hat will help you learn or practice:
- getting rid of that uneven first stitch that always happens when knitting in the round
- better knitting in the round, particularly with DPNs
- reading our knitting – so yes, you can knit without markers everywhere!
- making cables without a cable needle
- Norwegian purling (which allows Continental knitters to keep the yarn in back)
- and more!
