All Buttoned Up Decorated Cap

Lion Brand® Homespun®


14 sts + 20 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in St st (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

HEM - Cast on 24 sts. Purl 1 row.

All Buttoned Up Decorated Cap Reviewed by Nancy Hrobar on 2008-02-29 *****
This yarn is fabulous and made in America!!!!!!!!I am now making a scarf out of it to match. I used the red and am embellishing with purple for red hat festivities. What a great pattern and so hefty. Makes for a great trendy shape.
