Project Instructions

Step: 1


Step: 2

Finished Circumference 16 in. [41 cm]. Hat will stretch to fit up to about 9 months.

Step: 3


Step: 4

14 stitches across and 28 rows down should measure 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row).

Step: 5


Step: 6

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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using smaller size needles; if more stitches and rows, try larger size needles.

Fold rectangle in half lengthwise and use tail to sew seam. Seam is center back of Hat. At one open end of Hat, sew center front to center back at seam to make top of Hat.
