lion brand® wool-ease® thick & quick® gold medal knit hat

You don’t need to be a world-champion knitter to make this super-cute, super-chunky hat! We’ve got a winning pattern that’ll show you how to make your very own!
Step 1
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
   -  Finished Circumference: About 17½" (44.5 cm); will stretch to fit a range of sizes.
   -  Finished Height: About 11½" (29 cm).
 
GAUGE: 12 sts = about 4" (10 cm) over Row 1 of hat; please be sure to check your gauge.

PROJECT NOTE: 
   -  To make this hat, you’ll work one piece in rows, then seam the sides to finish it.
   -  The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 2 - Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn, Solids – Fisherman 

HAT:
Cast on 52 sts.
 
Row 1: *Knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * to the end of the row.
 
Repeat Row 1 until your hat measures about 10 1/2" (26.5 cm) from the beginning.

Next Row: *Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right hand needle; insert left hand needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together, purl the next 2 sts together; repeat from * across the row; you’ll have 26 sts at the end of this row.

Cut the yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread the yarn tail through the eye of a blunt needle, then weave through the 13 remaining sts.
 
Pull the yarn tail to gather sts and knot yarn, then sew the sides of this piece together to make the hat.
