Work in Garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures about9 1/2" (24cm) from beginning. Bind off. Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail for gathering and sewing.



Thread yarn tail into blunt needle, then in and out of bound-off edge and pull to gather for top of Hat. Knot securely, then use remaining tail to seam sides to make Hat. Weave in ends.

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 fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using smaller size needles; more stitches and rows, try larger size needles.

Craft Notes
