Place 4 new sts on another DPN and cast on 4 more sts. Place them on 3rd DPN.

Note: 1. This CO method creates a well defined circle with a hole in the centre. If you dont like the hole, use the method shown in this video instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Vkpqdea-6o [KNITFreedom - Emily Ockers Circular CastOn (Magic Ring Cast-On)]. 2. If you prefer to make the hat using the magic loop method with a long cir needle instead of DPN's, CO in the same way but place 6 sts on one needle, and 6 sts on the other. Ewelina Murach 2011-13.
