Additional Materials
Note: Double-pointed needles can be used as well as straight.
GAUGE:
10 stitches + 12 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in stockinette stitch (straight needles: knit on right side, purl on wrong side) (double-pointed needles: knit every round). 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:
Hat is very soft and stretchy.

Hat is worked with two strands throughout -- one strand of Microspun and one strand of Fun Fur
