Free Knitting Pattern: Sparkle Knit Hat

Lion Brand® Keppi
Pattern #: L32137

Whether crocheted or knit, the hat will vary in finished length according to your tension. Therefore the pattern states to work even until almost all the yarn is used.  The largest size will be shorter in length than the smallest size because more stitches have been cast on or chained in the beginning. To make a longer hat or a slouch hat, we suggest purchasing an
additional ball.

Sparkle Knit Hat

Lion Brand® Keppi

GAUGE:

19 1/2 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

HAT
Cast on 66 (78, 84, 90, 96) sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 16 (19, 21, 22, 24) sts each on 2 needles and 17 (20, 21, 23, 24) sts each on 2 needles. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *K3, p3; repeat from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1, slipping marker on each rnd, until piece measures about 1 (1, 1, 1 1/2, 1 1/2) in. (2.5 (2.5, 2.5, 4, 4) cm) from beginning, then work in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd) until about 60 in. (152.5 cm) of yarn remains.
Top of Hat
Decrease Round:
K2tog around - 33 (39, 42, 45, 48) sts. Remove the marker.
Thread yarn tail through last rnd, pull tight and knot securely.

FINISHING
Thread both of the yarn strands of pompom into yarn needle and weave to inside of the top of Hat, then through pompom - this stitch stabilizes the pompom. Draw strands back through to wrong side of Hat and knot securely.
Weave in ends.

Sparkle Knit Hat Reviewed by MARTHA on 2014-01-19 ***
This is a very cute hat, but I found the amount of yarn provided somewhat inadequate, even for the smaller sizes. I took out all my knitting, then following the instructions for the Jazzy Knit Hat; and those worked out better. However, when I used the Jazzy yarn and followed the L32139 pattern instructions, I again found that the amount of yarn was not adequate for the decrease rows at the top. I do not think the yarn provided would be enough for anything above the 2-5 year old size.
