14 sts and 28 rows = 6 inches [15 cm] over garter stitch (k every row) using size 13 [9 mm] 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. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

Hats as shown feature contrasting ties; 2 balls of yarn are required.

Purchasing a single ball of yarn will result in the tie being the same color as the hat.

FINISHING: Sew sides together to form tube.

Bring yarn ends to inside of hat and pull tight.

Tie knot to secure.

Cast on 60 stitches.
