Lyra's Knit Hood

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


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.

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

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.



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.

Lyra's Knit Hood Reviewed by Ana Meeusen on 2015-06-16 *****
Changed the yarn to two strands of bulky yarn on hand and 7.5 mm needles. It turned out great. I added more cast on stitches then pattern as directed. Very simple and quick project.
