14 sc = 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

Ch 4; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 6 sc in ring; join with sl st in first sc - 6 sts.
Place marker for beg of rnd, move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around - 12 sts.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, *sc in first st, 2 sc in next st; rep from * around - 18 sts.

Row 1: Ch 1, turn, sc in next 28 sts.

Brimmed Cap Reviewed by Liz Jaragoske on 2014-01-06 *****
I have made two of these hats now. Love the pattern without the chain one in it. Just use a stitch marker. Also you do need a smaller weight yarn. Worsted weight 4 is so different in all brands of yarn. I also embellished with some buttons.
