House Colors Hat

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere

GAUGE:

19 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in 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.

House Colors Hat Reviewed by janet on 2013-01-27 *****
This was my first hat using double pointed needles and it came out o.k. It was not the pattern it was me and my first attempt at something new..I did it in Giants colors of red, white and blue. The pattern was easy to follow and I will try it again..
