Radiant Hat

Lion Brand® Hometown USA®


8 sts + 10 rows = about 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


Hat is worked, back and forth in rows, from lower edge up to top. The sts of the last row are gathered for top of Hat, and short sides are seamed to make Hat.

Cast on 38 sts.
Knit 3 rows.
Beginning with a purl row, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 21 rows.
Next Row: *K2tog; repeat from * to end of row - 19 sts at end of this row.
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull to gather. Knot securely.

Sew Hat seam.
Following package directions, make a medium size pom-pom. Tie pom-pom to top of Hat.
Weave in ends.

Radiant Hat Reviewed by Kathleen Ritchie on 2014-12-21 *****
I've made 5 of these hats. Very easy and quick. I did ribbing for the first 3 rows for a guy's hat. It fit everyone-guys or girls.
