Baby Hat

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


14 sts + 17.5 rows = 4" (10 cm) in pattern. 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


Wrap Stitch (Bring yarn to front, slip next 4 sts, wrap, place slipped sts back on left needle, wrap around) 3 times.

An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.

Baby Hat Reviewed by Isabel Stone on 2010-11-26 *****
Easy and fast to make.
I like it better every time I make it - the pattern is easy to follow and very satisfying. Good feedback from babys' moms.
