Make-a-Statement Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette 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.

Make-a-Statement Hat Reviewed by marylou on 2011-11-26 ****
a great warm double thick hat BUT you must make it MUCH longer between beginning/ending in order to fold the brim as it is folded in the picture otherwise, you have a cloche type hat, still attractibe without the brim
