GAUGE:

12 sc + 15 rnds = 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. Hat is worked in continuous rnds, beginning at crown (top of Hat). Do not join and do not turn at end of rnds. The band is worked in joined rnds.
2. To shape the band, a line of surface sl sts are worked around the Hat, between the body of Hat and the band.

Polaris Hat Reviewed by Celeste Keller on 2013-10-19 *****
This hat is easy to make and so cute on!! It actually only used one ball of Amazing, so I was able to make two of them.
