Lace And Cables Hat

Lion Brand« Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

24 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Rib pattern.

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:

2/1 LC (2 over 1 left cross) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k1, then k2 from cable needle.
2/1 RC (2 over 1 right cross) Slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in back of work, k2, then k1 from cable needle.
3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross)Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

sk2p (slip-k2tog-pass slipped st over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle as if to knit, and slip the next st from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next 2 sts together.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the slipped st (the 2nd st on right needle) up and over the k2tog (first st on right needle) and off the needle - you have decreased 2 sts.

ssk (slip, slip, knit)
Slip the next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

yo (yarn over)
Important Note: Do not use an existing st to make a yo (yarn over).
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

Lace And Cables Hat Reviewed by Audrey Woodbeck on 2014-01-01 ***
This hat was much larger than I figured. I used Angel Hair yarn instead of the wool - not sure if that should affect the sizing. It was a beautiful & creative pattern.
