Toboggan Hat

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool


16 sts = 4” [10 cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) on larger needles. 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.

Toboggan Hat Reviewed by jane shannon on 2013-10-15 *****
This is my MITZVAH hat pattern for charity. I knit 3 hats at a time on a circular needle. The advantage is that I do the shaping and k2tog at the same time. I also make a ball first and then I place the ball I just used on the needle so that it doesn't get tangled. It's nt that heavy or cumbersome.
