Exact gauge is not essential to this project.
w&t (wrap and turn):
A technique used to ensure that a small hole doesn't form at the end of a short row.
1. Slip next st as if to purl.
2. Bring yarn between needles to front. Take care not to wrap the yarn over a needle, this would create a new st.
3. Slip same st back to left needle.
4. Turn work and bring yarn into position for next st. This will place a yarn wrap around the base of the st.
1. Hat is shaped by working short rows. Short rows are worked over a portion of the sts, leaving remaining sts unworked, by turning when the instructions tell you to do so.
2. Sts are wrapped to prevent holes from forming when working short rows. Because this Hat is worked in Garter st (knit every row), the wraps do not need to be worked later, they can simply be left in place.
Cast on 9 sts.
Note: On each of the following rows, you will, in effect, be working two rows, knitting a number of sts, wrapping the next st, then working back to the beg of the row.
Row 1: K8, wrap last st, turn and k8.
Row 2: K7, wrap next st, turn and k7.
Row 3: K6, wrap next st, turn and k6.
Row 4: K5, wrap next st, turn and k5.
Rep Rows 1-4 until piece measures about 21 in. (53.5 cm) from beg.
Bind off. Cut yarn leaving about a 24 in. (61 cm) yarn tail.
With your fingers and long yarn tail, 'sew' sides of piece together to make Cap.
Use your fingers to weave in the yarn ends.
