SIZES 0-12 months (1-2 years)
Finished Circumference About 15” (17-1/2"), will stretch to fit a range of sizes.
Note: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger size in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

GAUGE
18 sts = about 4” over St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with larger needles.
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to make a 4” square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
