Watch Cap

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

14 sts +19 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger 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.

Watch Cap Reviewed by Kathy Anneken on 2013-12-17 *****
Just finished knitting NINE hats as Christmas presents for my family. Very easy pattern to follow. I would say this is a "hat" more than a "cap" for it must be worn with the cuff turned backed otherwise it's too big for adults. And of course, a hat ain't a hat until it has a pom-pom ! Wonderful pattern, thank you Lion Brand.
