Lyra's Knit Hood

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick« - Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

4 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) with 2 strands of A and 1 strand of B held together.
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.

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

HOOD
NOTE: Divide A into 2 balls.
Beginning at face edge and with 2 strands of A and 1 strand of B held together, cast on 18 (22) stitches.
Work in Stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) until piece measures about 9 (10-1/2) in. (23 (27) cm) from beginning. Slip 9 (11) stitches onto a spare needle, size 19 or any smaller size. Fold piece so needles are parallel, with wrong sides of each half of Hood together. Hold these 2 needles in left hand. With empty needle, knit 2 together (1 stitch from each needle) twice - 2 stitches on right hand needle. Bind off first stitch over stitch just knitted. Repeat across until all stitches are bound off. Cut yarns and pull ends through last stitch to finish.

 

FINISHING
Ties

Cut 4 strands of A and 3 strands of B, each 30 in. (76 cm) long. Knot all strands of A and B together. Divide strands into 3 groups and braid together. Knot ends leaving about 5 in. (12.5 cm) unbraided. Knot other end of braid inside Hood.
Work other tie in same manner.
Weave in ends.

Love this pattern...knitted it up in less than 3 hours...cute as heck! Knitted the last 3 stitches instead of crocheting them....
