12 sts = about 5 in. (12.5 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


Popcorn Work 4 dc in indicated st, drop loop from hook, insert hook in first dc of the 4-dc group just made, return dropped loop to hook and draw it through.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) 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.


1. The Band is designed to stretch to fit, so it worked with negative ease (it will be small than actual head size).
2. Band is worked back and forth in rows. The last row is joined to first row to make a ring.
3. The sts for the Hat are worked along one long side of the Band.


Ch 7.
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook (beg ch does not count as a st) and in each ch across - 5 hdc at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, hdc in each st across.
Rep Row 2 until piece measures 16 in. (40.5 cm) from beg.
Hold first and last rows together, matching sts.
Ch 1, turn. Working through both thicknesses, sl st in each st across to join. Do not fasten off.


Rnd 1:
Ch 1, working in ends of rows across long side of band, work 48 sc evenly spaced around; join with sl st in first st.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each st around; join with sl st in first sc - 96 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), popcorn in next st, *dc in next st, popcorn in next st; rep from * around; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc in each st around; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 5: Rep Rnd 3.
Rnd 6-15: Rep Rnds 4 and 5.
Rnd 16: Ch 1, *sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc - 72 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 17: Rep Rnd 3.
Rnd 18: Ch 1, *sc in next st, sc2tog; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc - 48 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 19: Rep Rnd 3.
