Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


6 sts + 10 rows = 5 in. (12.5 cm) in St st (k every rnd) with 3 strands 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


Wind yarn into 3 balls before beginning. Work holding 3 strands of yarn together throughout.

With 3 strands of yarn held together, cast on 24 sts, and divide evenly onto 3 needles. Join, being careful not to twist. Place marker for beg of rnd. Work in St st (k every rnd) until piece measures 5 in. (12.5 cm) from beg.

The Super Easy...Super Cute Hat Reviewed by Amanda Whetstone on 2008-10-22 *****
I absolutely love this hat pattern! I needed something quick and easy to knit up for a craft fair at my job. This hat fit the bill. It only takes about 2 hours to knit (and I'm not a fast knitter). So far I've made two and I am starting on my third one. This is my first attempt at a hat. The pom-pom thing was a little tricky so I embellished mine with felt shapes, beads, jewels or buttons. Turned out really cute and everyone loves them! I plan to make at least five.
