GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over St 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

HAT
Cast on 40 sts loosely. Divide sts onto 3 needles. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle, being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *K2, p2, rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 until piece measures about 6 in. (15 cm) from beg.
Next Rnd: *K19, k in front and then back of next st (increase made), rep from * once – 42 sts at the end of this rnd. Continue in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures 9 in. (23 cm) from beg.
Shape Crown
Next Rnd:
*K5, k2tog, rep from * around – 36 sts.
Next Rnd and every other Rnd: Knit.
Next Rnd: *K4, k2tog, rep from * around – 30 sts.
Next Rnd: *K3, k2tog, rep from * around – 24 sts.
Next Rnd: *K2, k2tog, rep from * around – 18 sts.
Next Rnd: *K1, k2tog, rep from * around – 12 sts.
Next Rnd: K2tog around – 6 sts.
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and gather tightly together. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Pompom

Following package directions, make a large pompom. Tie pompom to top of Hat. Weave in ends.

Fresh Greens Hat made in Washington Denim color Reviewed by on 2013-04-28 ****
This was my very first project using double pointed needles. I used US9 DPN due to a misread of the pattern (which recommends US13). My finished product I love and it only took me one day, however, it's a bit tight on my head and is going to be donated to a younger person with a smaller head. I plan on trying this pattern again with the proper size needles to see if that will help it fit my own head a little better. Also have to be careful with the Hometown USA yarn, any "catches" by the needles do show in the finished product. With practice and going a little slower I think I can avoid that in the future.
