Can I knit this with a single 16” circular needle? With DPNs? With one long circular needle (magic loop)? With 2 circular needles?
YES! You can knit this or any other similar hat with whichever method you prefer. If you use a 16” circular needle for most of the hat, you will have to switch to any one of the other methods when you are decreasing for the top of the hat.
Also, for the tubular cast-on, straight needles in the same size are helpful, but not required.
