Squiggles Baby Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


12 sc = 4 in. (10 cm). 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


1) Work in back loops only throughout.
2) Carry color not in use loosely along edge of work.

With A, ch 29.
Row 1: Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and next 9 ch, sc in remaining 18 ch - 28 sts. Drop, but do not cut, A. Join B with sl st in last sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc tbl in next 18 sc, leave remaining sts unworked, ch 11.
Row 3: Turn, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and next 9 ch, sc tbl in remaining 18 sc. Drop, but do not cut, B. Pick up A.
Repeat last 2 rows, alternating A and B, until piece measures 16 in. (40.5 cm) from beg, end with a Row 2 worked with B.
Last Row: With B, turn, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and next 9 ch; bring first row of Hat to meet last row. Working through both thicknesses, sc in last 18 sc to join edges. Fasten off.


From right side, join A with sl st along straight edge of Hat. Ch 1, sc evenly around edge, join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
With A, ch 32.
Row 1: Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. Fasten off.
Knot tie around "squiggles" at top of Hat. Weave in ends.

Reviewed by Crystal Rodgerson on 2012-08-29 ****
I just made this for my 9 mo old son, in my husband's favorite college team colors. Instead of making a tie for the squiggles, I used a double strand of yarn and sewed through the top of the rows (from the inside). Then I drew it up tight like a drawstring, to bring the top together. It's super cute! Planning on making the matching blanket out of the leftover yarn. My son will be all ready for football games!!
