Ed's Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over Stockinette st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).
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

Reviewed by Kim Selle on 2008-05-25 ****
I like this hat, but the length is a bit short...so I actually increased the length of the stockinette stitch rows by about 1.5 inches and now it's perfect! Super easy and fast to work up!
