Sparrow Creek 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and then back of same st)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.

NOTES:

Hat is worked in the rnd, no sewing is necessary.

Sparrow Creek Hat Reviewed by ERIN KRALL on 2013-12-16 *****
Fast & simple pattern for a basic hat. The soft & chunky Wool-Ease Thick n Quick yarn is one of my favorites to use since it works up quickly & creates very soft & warm pieces.
