Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 10 sts + 16 rows in pattern to knit a capelet that measures about 40 inch in Finished Circumference at Lower Edge and a Finished Length of about 11-1/2 inch and knit a hat that measures about 20 inch in finished Circumference and about 8-1/2 inch in Length. 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 make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle. Download the template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Stitch Explanation: Pattern Stitch = 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.
