Ripe Wheat Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


8 single crochet = 4 in (10 cm). 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

Chain 19.
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across - 18 single crochet.
Row 2: Chain 1, turn, working in back loops only, single crochet in each single crochet across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 19 in. (48.5 cm) from beginning. Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through ends of rows along one long edge and pull to gather for top of Hat. Knot securely.

Seam ends to make Hat.
Following package directions make a pom-pom. Tie pom-pom to top of Hat.
Weave in ends.

Ripe Wheat Hat Reviewed by Ashley on 2011-06-15 ****
This was a very easy project that took a little less than an hour to make. I still have about 1/4 skein leftover, though part of that is because I decided to forego the pom-pom.

I gave this four stars simply because I prefer to make hats in the round. And a word of advice: I used a Q hook for this and chained 18 instead of 19.
