Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 17 sts + 24 round (about 4 inch) in Beaded Rib pattern using larger needles to knit a hat that measures 19 inch in Finished Circumference and 11-1/2 inch in Finished Height. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.

    Special stitches and abbreivations:
    K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (over an even number of sts) = Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd. Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.
    Beaded Rib Pattern worked in rnds (over an even number of sts) = Rnd 1: Purl. Rnd 2: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd. Rep Rnds 1 and 2 for Beaded Rib pattern worked in rnds.
    Notes:
    Hat is worked in rnds beg at lower edge.
    When knitting in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 4 dpns, your sts should be divided among 3 needles. If you are working with a set of 5 dpns, your sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.
