Knitting a hat using a 12-peg wheel-HELP!

by Layne

I am a 14-year-old and I own a 12-peg wheel. I am getting very good at making scarves with it, and I really want to learn how to make a hat but I do not own a 36-peg wheel and I do not know how to crochet or knit.


I want to make a hat with my school's colors. It doesn't matter what type of hat, but I think it would be very fun to do and to wear. Is this even possible? Do I have to buy a 36-peg wheel? Are there any other suggested ways?
