Zig Zag Accessories

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Chenille Thick & Quick® - Jiffy® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 14 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. 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.

I Love this hat and pattern. I'm not a very skilled knitter but I have a good friend who reviews my work. These were fun to make and everyone loved them!
