Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 19-1/2 sts (4 inch) in St st worked in rnds to knit a hat that measures 14 (16, 17, 18, 20, 21) inch to fit approximately 6-12 months (1-2 year(s), 2-5 years, 5-7 years, 7-12 years, Adult Small). Remember 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 and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size needle. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Pattern and supplies are written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To be sure of a good fit, measure head circumference before beginning.

Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts. Rnd 1: *K3, p3; repeat from * to end of rnd. Rep Rnd 1, slipping marker on each rnd, until piece measures about 1 (1, 1, 1-1/2, 1-1/2, 1-1/2) inch from beginning, then work in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd) until about 60 inch of yarn remains.
