GAUGE:

14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette 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 64 sts loosely. Divide sts onto 3 or 4 needles. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *K2, p2; rep from * around.
Rep last rnd until piece measures about 5 1/2 in. (14 cm) from beg.
Next Rnd: Knit.
Continue in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures 9 in. (23 cm) from beg.

Simple Hat Reviewed by Kathy on 2013-12-14 *****
Very cute and easy. Knits up quickly too. I added a crocheted flower for a finishing touch.
