Snowstorm Hat

Lion Brand® Holiday Homespun®


13 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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

With A, cast on 60 sts. Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures about 6 in. (15 cm) from beg, end with WS row.
Next (Decrease) Row: *K2tog, k4; rep from * across – 50 sts at end of row.
Continue in St st until piece measures 8 in. (20.5 cm) from beg.
Next Row: *K2tog, k3; rep from * across – 40 sts.
Continue in St st until piece measures 11 in. (28 cm) from beg. Bind off.

Sew seam. With B, embroider a cross st onto Hat, then embroider a straight st over cross st to make a snowflake. Rep for additional snowflakes around Hat as desired.
Cut 2 lengths of B, each about 2 yards (1.5 meters) long. Fold strands in half and knot about 4 in. (10 cm) from fold to form a loop. Secure loop around doorknob. Twist other end tightly until yarn begins to twist back on itself. Release loop from doorknob. Bring ends together and let cord twist on itself, smoothing to even the twist. Knot ends, trim loop. Thread Cord through Hat about 2 in. (5 cm) from bound-off edge, pull to close top of Hat. Knot Cord. Weave in ends.
