Step 4: Tying

Once you are finished, you should have something that looks like a huge tube sock that is open on both ends. Cut strips that go halfway down the hat (this should be around 11 inches) from the open side on the top, opposite the rim. Do not cut these strips off. Tie 4 of the opposite strips together, or until it is sealed on the top and you have your $5, 5 minute hat!

Awesome. But I dont have a sewing mahcine. -tear-
I can operate a sewing machine, <em>but choose not to.</em> All you have to do is just sew in the areas it tells you to and&nbsp;do all that other good stuff. No need to cry, Frindledon3! I don't own one anyway and plan to do this!&nbsp;I could probably figure out how to do this no-sew, if needed. Just PM me!&nbsp;
Patience. Watch the curbs, thrift stores, Craig's List, sometimes Free-Cycle. Heavy built to last pre-1975 machines are often tossed or sell for &lt;$15. Most can be brought back to life with a through cleaning, rarely do they need more adjustment then the thread tension. Heavy, but will outlast the next generation of sewers. Yahoo! has several groups that help people resurrect/keep them going. A Zigzag isn't even necessary for most home projects like this or curtains, towels etc.<br /> <br /> Ron<br />
You could do it by hand (if you have loads and loads of spare time that is :))<br /> <br /> I made a hat like this way back. It's so warm I only use it when it is very very cold. Made an accompanying &nbsp;scarf to go with it as well.
I'm making it for a cancer patient. To keep her head warm in the winter. I can adjust it for someone with no hair.. Thanks
Very detailed! Thank you!
Cute hat!&nbsp; Looks toasty.<br />
