Striped Hat, Scarf & Socks

Lion Brand® Magic Stripes


Hat 24 sts + 32 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (knit every round) on Size 4 (3.5 mm) needles
Scarf 36 sts + 28 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in K1, P1 Rib on Size 6 (4 mm) needles
Socks 28 sts + 40 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st on Size 3 (3.25 mm) needles 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


ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and k them tog.
Grafting Holding the 2 needles parallel with wrong sides of fabric together, thread a blunt needle with one of the yarn ends and work as follows:
Insert needle as if to purl into first stitch on front piece. Insert needle as if to knit into first stitch on back piece. Then follow steps 1-4 as outlined below. 1) insert needle as if to knit through first st on front needle and let the st drop from needle. 2) Insert needle into 2nd st on front needle as if to purl and pull the yarn through, leaving st on needle. 3) Insert needle into first st on back needle as if to purl and let it drop from needle, then 4) insert it as if to knit through 2nd st on back needle and pull the yarn through, leaving st on needle. Repeat 1-4 until all sts are gone. When finished, adjust tension as necessary.
