GAUGE
20 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on size 8 needles

The stitch gauge is important for the proper fit of the hat for the average adult head size, especially if it is for a fund raising event. Before beginning this hat, make a sample gauge.

For this pattern both stitch and row gauges can be a bit off, allowing for slight differences in the finished size.

There is not as much size differences between head measurements as there is between body measurements. Therefore working the pattern in the gauge given is perfect for most. For a friend or loved one, when a slight size adjustments is needed.

There is a little leeway in sizing, using the same pattern. The pattern is written for basic worsted yarn at 20 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches.

To make a hat with a smaller or larger finished circumference, use a needle one size smaller or larger then called for in the pattern. For the ribbing use a needle three sizes smaller, used for the body. For a length adjustment make fewer or more inches to the top (neck shaping on the front starts 14 rows before the finished number of rows as the completed back. The hat is designed with approximately three inches less than the circumference of the head.
With a stitch gauge of 5.5 stitches = 1 inch-(
2.54 cm) the circumference of the finished hat is 17.5 inches-(44.4 cm)*
With a stitch gauge of 4.5 stitches = 1 inch-(
2.54 cm) the circumference of the finished hat is 21.5 inches-(54.6 cm)*

*The circumference of the finished hat is less than the actual head circumference.
