Image of Colorful Beginner's Hat
This hat is simple to make, but colorful because it uses multicolored Hometown USA. Great for a beginner to practice knitting, purling, and a simple decrease.

Colorful Beginner's Hat

Lion Brand« Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

9 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). 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.

Colorful Beginner's Hat Reviewed by M Hamilton on 2013-12-30 *****
What a great pattern! I too did a second row of k2tog to give the top of the hat a more rounded shape. I finished the hat in about 90 minutes. So easy and too cute! This is a great beginner pattern but makes a hat that looks like it took some skill to make. I'm going to make them for all the kids in my life.
