Santa Hat

Lion Brand Holiday Homespun®

GAUGE:

15 sts + 23 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) over St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with B. 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.

Santa Hat Reviewed by Christine on 2012-12-06 *****
I knit this in the round until it got too stretched on the cable, then knit flat and sewed up to the tip. For the pom pom, I cast on the recommended number of stitches, worked in garter stitch, making a square. With a needle, picked up stitches in a circle, gathered, tucked in the corners and stuffed with fiberfill. Very easy pattern. I plan to make a newborn size with the leftover yarn.
