Soft Cozy Hat

Lion Brand® Da Vinci


About 9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (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


K2, p2 Rib worked in rnds (multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in rnds.


1. Hat is worked in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), so no sewing is needed! Smaller size needles are used for the ribbed portion of the Hat.
2. When knitting in the round on dpns your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 5 dpn, your sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.

With smaller needles, cast on 44 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 11 sts on each needle. 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.
Work in K2, p2 rib worked in rnds until piece measures about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from beg.
Note: In the next rnd, you will be instructed to change to larger needles. To change to larger needles, just work the next rnd with larger needles, working the sts from each of the smaller needles in turn.
Change to larger needles and work in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd) until piece measures about 8 1/2 in. (21.5 cm) from beg.
