Electric Color Hat

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rnds = 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

PATTERN STITCH
K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (over an even number of sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

NOTES:

1. Hat is worked in rnds on double pointed needles (dpns) beg at lower edge.
2. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 5 dpns, your sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.


HAT
Cast on 42 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 10 sts each on 1st and 2nd needles and 11 sts each on 3rd and 4th needles. Place marker for beginning 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 K1, p1 Rib for 7 rnds.
Change to St st worked in rnds (k every rnd), and work 10 rnds.
Shape Crown (top of Hat)
Decrease Rnd:
*K5, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd – 36 sts.
Knit 2 rnds.
Decrease Rnd: *K4, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd – 30 sts.
Knit 2 rnds.
Decrease Rnd: *K3, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd – 24 sts.
Knit 2 rnds.
Decrease Rnd: *K2, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd – 18 sts.
Knit 1 rnd.
Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull to gather. Knot securely.

Weave in ends.
