Santa Claus Hat

Lion Brand® Chenille Thick & Quick® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

10 sts + 14 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with MC.

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

Infant hat pattern was used for the dog

Santa Claus Hat Reviewed by Rose Boot on 2011-12-22 *****
Great pattern!!! I knitted it for my grandson last year, he is 2 years old now. I just redid the fur, because his head is bigger now. Thanks again, very good and easy pattern!!!
