GAUGE:
11 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch in the round (knit every round). EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT. 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:
1.

The Hat is knit in the round as a tube.

2.

The instructions in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round.

These instructions are under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.

3.

Always work in a clockwise direction around loom to knit in the round.

The contrast color peg marks the beginning of each round.
