Striking Hat and Scarf

Lion Brand® Amazing®


18 stitches + 32 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter Stitch (knit every row).

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


3 skeins of yarn are used for the scarf, and 2 are used for the hat.

Cast on 90 stitches. Work in Garter Stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 12 in. (30.5 cm) from beginning. Bind off, leaving a 12 in. (30.5 cm) tail.

Fold piece in half and sew sides together. Weave tail through sts of bound-off edge and pull tight to gather top of Hat, knot securely.
Following package directions, make a medium size pompom. Tie pompom to top of Hat. Weave in ends.

Cast on 32 stitches. Work in Garter Stitch (knit every row) until piece measures about 65 in. (165 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Excellent, and Easy! Great for a Gift :) Reviewed by Marcia B. Washburn on 2014-10-23 *****
Hi, I'm 12 and I made the hat in Cobblestone for my grandfather. I think it is awesome it is definitely for me, a beginner. I enjoyed making it and it didn't take me too long :) I accidentally casted on 87 stitches and made it 12 1/2" tall rather than 90 stitches and 12" tall. It worked out fine for me and here's a tip:
If you are making it for someone with a (physically) smaller head cast on less stitches. If you have someone with a (physically) bigger head, cast on more stitches.
Also, instead of buying the pom-pom maker, I just scrunched the top up into a small pom-pom and it looks and feels great and saves me money! :)
I would definitely recommend this hat to anyone with a little patience (about two weeks) and not a lot of experience with knitting.
I have 3 brothers, 2 sisters and 1 on the way (Yay!!!) and almost every single one wants me to make one in a different color for them.
It is comfortable and is warm.
I am wearing it right now :)
Thank you Lion Brand!
