20 sc = 4 inches 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



Dec 1: Pull up loop in each of next two sc; yo, pull through all 3 loops on hook.


Ribbing for Brim: Ch 11.

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across-10 sc. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Sc in back loop only of first sc and each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Rep Row 2 until piece meas approx 9˝", slightly stretched. Turn work sideways.

Crown: Row 1: Work 45 sc evenly spaced along side of ribbing. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Sc in both loops of each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Rep Row 2 until piece meas 2" from ribbing.

First Dec Row: Sc in first 2 sc, * dec 1, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * across, ending last rep with only 1 sc-36 sc. Ch 1, turn.

Second Dec Row: * Sc in next 2 sc, dec 1; rep from * across-27 sc.

Work next two rows even.

Third Dec Row: * Dec 1; rep from * across, sc in last sc-14 sc.

Work one row even.

Last Row: * Dec 1; rep from * across-7 sc. Cut yarn leaving long tail. Thread yarn through last 7 sc, pulling tight to close. Sl st or sew back seam, reversing at brim to keep seam invisible. Add pom-pom if desired.

Made this last night while watching tv. Pretty easy for a semi- beginner like me. Will definitely do again.
