GAUGE:

9 stitches + 14 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). 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.

Baby Hat Reviewed by Lynne Hughs on 2009-06-13 *****
I've made several of these hats and they are such a huge hit!!!! It's an easy project, I can usually finish it in one evening, maybe 2. The yarn is so fabulous! Even though you have to sew a seam, the yarn is so plush, you can hardly see or feel the seam when it's done.
