Wabbit Hat

Lion Brand« Modern Baby«

GAUGE:

20 sts + 28 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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:

French Knot
Thread needle and bring from back to front through knitted piece. Wrap yarn around needle 3 times, insert needle back into knitted piece close to where it emerged. Tighten knot.
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
Surface Chain Stitch
Thread needle and bring from back to front through piece. *Hold short length of yarn on front forming a small loop. Insert needle back into where it last came out, do not pull tight. Bring needle back through work and through small loop; repeat from * until chain is desired length.

PATTERN STITCHES

2. Hat is worked in stripes, changing color every 4th row. Carry color not in use along side of work.
