Lion Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 1/2 sc = 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 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Hat band is worked back and forth in rows, then ends are joined to make a ring.
2. Hat is worked in joined rnds, beginning along one long side of Band. Work Hat with RS facing, do not turn.
3. Ears, eyes, nose and muzzle are worked separately and sewn to Hat.
4. Mane is worked directly onto Hat.
