Slouchy Granny Square Cap

Lion Brand« Unique

GAUGE:

One Granny Square = 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 in. (16.5 x 16.5 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:

beg-Cl (beginning cluster) Ch 3, yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), yarn over, insert hook in same st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (3 loops rem on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Three Granny Squares are worked with each joined to the previous Square to create a circle of Squares.
