Sparrow Creek Hat Reviewed by ERIN KRALL on 2013-12-16 *****
Fast & simple pattern for a basic hat. The soft & chunky Wool-Ease Thick n Quick yarn is one of my favorites to use since it works up quickly & creates very soft & warm pieces.

Really simple and straightforward hat. I made this for my sister's birthday. I know that some think the band is too wide, but it worked out just perfect for her.

Great pattern. It knits up so quickly that I was able to make several for my dad who is having chemo treatments. He relishes them in this cold weather and is so proud to tell people that I made them for him! I think I am going to have to claim the next one for myself! :)
I am not really comfortable with DP needles, so I used size 13, 16 inch circular and then switched to the DPNs when it was time to decrease.
Will try to catch Daddy at his best and upload some pics! Thanks for a great pattern, just in time!
Keep Smilin'!

I made this on 10.5 needles and it came out nice and thick and full. I think it will be very warm and a great gift!

Love it! Everything a pattern should be - simple, quick, and practical! I did it first without the plain stockinette section, though; I had to unravel all those decreases and start back at the end of the ribbing! Ah well. I knitted it in Hometown USA and it's a lovely hat!

Love this pattern! It only took about two hours to make, and the end result is great.

Very cute pattern. It meets the one size fits all for about an 18 inch circumference. I've made two already. Thanks for sharing, Lion Brand!

I agree, for an adult, it is way too small, and it was perfect for my grand kids. To solve the problem, I increased by 8 stitches, so it can be divided by 5 , and then proceeded with the hat.

I found I still needed to add more rounds before decreasing too but after that , it is an easy pattern, and knits up quickly and it makes a great hat.

P.S. It helps if you can find some circular needles to begin with ( 16 " ) as then you only have the double pointed ones to deal with when decreasing toward the end. I find it very helpful and can now whip a hat up in a day.

This pattern was returned when I was searching for men's hats. I checked the gauge twice and the hat was still way too small.
