GAUGE:
5 1/2 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) with 1 strand each of A and B held together. EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO 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. Hat is worked with 1 strand each of A and B held together.
2. Follow loom manual instructions for DOUBLE KNITTING for how to cast on, lace the loom, knit, change color, and bind off.
3. Cut a 24 in.

(61 cm) length of A to use as the scrap yarn that is placed over the cast on stitches as indicated in the loom manual.

This length of A will also be used to gather the top of the Hat and sew the Hat together.
4. The cast on edge will become the top of the Hat.
5. Hat will be longer and narrower than finished measurement as it comes off the loom.

Gently pull from the sides to form Hat into shape.
6. One large contrast color peg is placed on one U-shaped piece to hold beginning slip knot at cast on edge Do not knit on contrast color peg.
