Jimster is knit flat, from side to side, and is a fantastically quick knit! Ideally worked with a provisional cast-on and grafting for a seam-free finish, this little Hat is absolutely perfect for practising these skills. Notes are included for grafting garter stitch, and a lengthier photographic tutorial can be downloaded from here.
