GAUGE:
9 half double crochets + 8 1/2 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm). 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 made of 2 pieces.

2.

Both pieces are worked in stripes.

The stripes are made by alternating 2 colors of yarn.

3.

To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete stitch.

Carry color not in use loosely up side of piece until next needed.

4.

You don't need to cut the yarn between color changes, just carry the strand of yarn loosely along the side of your work.

This strand will be hidden when you sew the Hat together.
