GAUGE:
14 stitches across and 28 rows down should measure 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row). 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
Hat is worked as a rectangle.


INSTRUCTIONS



HAT
Cast on 56 stitches.

Work in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until there are a total of 48 rows (24 ridges).

Bind off all stitches, leaving a long tail.



FINISHING
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.

Bring center of each side in to meet at top of Hat and sew together.

Weave in ends by threading each end into large-eyed blunt needle, then weaving the end through the knitted stitches.



Pompoms (Make 3)
Follow package instructions to make 3 Pompoms.

Use the ends of the knotted strand to attach Pompoms to Hat.
