Project Instructions

GAUGE

16 sts = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k every rnd)
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

Note:  When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create an asymmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.

HAT

Cast on 75 sts. Divide sts onto four needles, having 19 sts on each of three needles and 18 sts on 4th needle. Place marker for beginning of rnd and join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.

Work in St st in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures about 5" (12.5 cm) from beg.

Next Rnd: *K13, k2tog; rep from * around – 70 sts at the end of this rnd.

Knit two rnds.
