Wythe Slouch Hat

Lion Brand« Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd) with larger needles.

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

NOTES:

1. Hat is worked in the rnd on double pointed needles.
2. Color is changed following Stripe Sequence.


STRIPE SEQUENCE
Work *3 rnds with A, 6 rnds with B; repeat from * for Stripe Sequence.

HAT
With smaller needles and A, cast on 44 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles (11 sts per 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 St st (k every rnd), changing color following Stripe Sequence until piece measures about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from beg. Change to larger needles and continue in St st and Stripe Sequence until piece measures about 12 in. (30.5 cm) from beg.
Decrease Rnd: Continuing in Stripe Sequence, (k2tog) around - 22 sts.
Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull to gather. Knot securely.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Wythe Slouch Hat Reviewed by PAMELA C WISSMAN on 2013-12-26 *****
I knit this hat (with a few changes in the pattern) for my nieces this Christmas. They loved it. It is a very cute hat; looks good on almost anyone.
I found that I had to reduce needle sizes to 10 and 11 instead of 13 and 15 as the hat was just way too loose as pattern directed. I also had to increase my stitch count. I simply measured my own head just above the ears and then after knitting my gauge swatch and measuring to find out the number of stitches per inch,I figured I needed about 80 stitches (the number of stitches must be evenly divisible by four.)
I also used Vanna's choice yarn as it was a bit easier to work with and made the hat a bit stiffer and warmer.
This was fun. I had a good time choosing the colors and varying the striped pattern a bit. The only real trouble I had was in remembering to tuck the yarn ends in on the outside of the hat for the section which will be the rolled brim.
As I ended up with so many stitches, I used two rows to reduce the stitches before taking the stitches off of the needles, so I went from 80 to 40 stitches and then repeated the row, knitting two sts together all round to end up with 20 stitches in final row.
All in all a great pattern.
One more change I made: I only knitted this hat 10.5 inches long instead of 12. It still has enough body to have a rolled brim and a slouchy look to it.
