One more question..I think...btw,you guys are awesome!!

When I go to take it off the needles,do I go back and around that first stitch?Does that make sense?If that video shows,I haven't had a chance to check it out yet...Thanks!

Yes, start and finish with that first stitch:
Once you've threaded the tapistry needle with about 10inches of yarn tail, use it like the right knitting needle. Pass the stitches one by one off the left needle onto the tapistry needle and when all the sts are on the yarn threaded through the tapistry needle, pull the yarn up tightly. You can then tie a knot to secure or go back around the sts and thread the yarn through all or some of them again. As Sue suggested, you can also use this yarn end to seam the hat down to the cast on edge.

I will use that yarn to seam the edge...I'm afraid it will look funny if I go back and over the first stitch..I just don't want to mess it up!!I've worked hard on it.

No idea why my link posted that way, but try this if you still need it. The closing seaming part is at about 1:28

Neither of these is a perfectly clear videos and they probably aren't the one Jan is thinking of but see if they help at all.

I've never had a problem posting links before from my iPad so I don't know what is going on.

I'm on my computer now so hopefully this will work. The link is called How to Knit a Hat and it's by Howcast. They knit a blue hat then close the top and seam. The part you are asking about is at 1:24 or so.

I've started knitting hats recently.

I like knitting them in the round, as I avoid sewing a seam on them.
Of course I can't say I PREFER to knit them in the round rather than straight since I've only knitted them in the round.

I've been practicing an awful lot on "waste" or left over yarn. I use magic loop for them until I start decreasing stitches at the top.
