Project Instructions

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

NOTES
1. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of four dpn, your sts should be divided among three needles. If you are working with a set of five dpn, your sts should be divided among four 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 a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.
2. When you see ‘work even’ in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.

HAT
Cast on 63 sts. Divide sts onto four needles (16 sts on each of three needles, and 15 sts on one needle). Place marker for beg of rnd. 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 even in St st in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures about 4" (10 cm) from beg.
