GAUGE:
15 sts + 30 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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:
1.

Hat is worked flat in Garter st (k every row) and intarsia colorwork, and then seamed.

The colorwork creates 6 sections of triangles.

2.

Body of Hat is worked first, then sts are picked up along one long edge to work top of Hat.

3.

When working in intarsia, use a separate ball of yarn for each section of color.

Wind each ball of yarn into 2 separate balls before beginning.

When changing color, twist strands on WS to prevent holes.
