What is your favorite type of hat to knit flat or with circular needles and why is it your favorite method. I am in the process of learning both methods and just wondering if one is more attractive then the other. so far I have discovered that stitching with the circulars is very tight spaced and is easier to do it on the flat method but seaming it ups so far has not been quite as successfull as I would like it too be so the circulars probably win out for that reason. How do you all feel about it? and what is your favorite pattern to use?
