Tip Top Topper

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 sc = about 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sc2tog (sc decrease) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. The Topper is worked in joined rnds. Join with sl st at the end of each rnd.
2. Top of hat is worked first as a flat circle. The sides are worked from the edge of the top downwards, with increases to shape the brim.
