Hat and Booties

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


18 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


K1, p1 Rib (over an even number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * across.

Next (Eyelet) Row: *K2, k2tog, yo; rep from * across to last 2 sts, k last 2 sts.
Purl 1 row.
Change to K1, p1 Rib and work until piece measures about 7 in. (18 cm) from beg. Bind off.

Hat and Booties Reviewed by Connie Paraskevas on 2014-06-10 ****
I found the pattern very easy to follow. I added pom-poms to the booties for hiding my seams and to make them even cuter. I used Lion Brand Fun yarn worsted 4. I thought the hat felt a little heavy on top.
