Margaret's Hat

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


12 hdc = 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.

Margaret's Hat Reviewed by Kimberly Merritt on 2013-02-08 ****
I finally made this hat after having the pattern for over a year. It was much easier than I expected, and it looks great. I love how it turned out and will make several more in different colors; it's a great hat to give as a gift, too.
