Free Knitting Pattern from Lion Brand Yarn, formatted for input to refreshable Braille displays or Braille software
Sparkle Knit Hat
Lion Brand® Keppi
Pattern Number: L32137
Whether crocheted or knit, the hat will vary in finished length according to your tension.

Therefore the pattern states to work even until almost all the yarn is used.

The largest size will be shorter in length than the smallest size because more stitches have been cast on or chained in the beginning.

To make a longer hat or a slouch hat, we suggest purchasing anadditional ball. Knit this fun and pop colored hat using Keppi, our newest, self-striping novelty yarn. Click here to see it in other colorways and sizes.

GAUGE:
19 1/2 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd). 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.
