SIZE:

Finished Circumference About 19 in. (48 cm), will stretch to fit a range of sizes.

GAUGE:

9 sts + 12 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

PATTERN STITCHES:

K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (over an even number of sts)
Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

DIRECTIONS:

Cast on 42 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 10 sts each on 1st and 2nd needles and 11 sts each on 3rd and 4th needles. Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work in K1, p1 Rib for 7 rnds.
Change to St st worked in rnds (k every rnd), and work 10 rnds.

Knit 1 rnd.
Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull to gather. Knot securely.

FINISHING:

Following package directions, make a large pom-pom. Tie pom-pom to top of Hat.
Weave in ends.

ABBREVIATIONS:

k = knit
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
p = purl
rep = repeat(s)(ing)
rnd(s) = round(s)
St st = Stockinette stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)

NOTES:

* Hat is worked in rnds on double pointed needles (dpns) beg at lower edge.
* When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 5 dpns, your sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using – this is not a problem! Simply divide sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.
