The Garter Rib Hat is a multi-gauge pattern that shows instructions for the following gauges in sts per one inch: 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5. My goal in creating this pattern was to allow knitters more freedom in yarn choice. You can choose a weight of yarn from fingering to bulky and the charts in the pattern will show you exactly how to knit your particular size in the yarn you've chosen. Special sizing charts are also shown, so that you can take exact measurements of the recipients head and find the size that will fit the best. Yarn: Any yarn that you'd like to work with that gives you a gauge from 4 - 6.5 sts per inch (10 - 16.5 st per cm). Amount differs with gauge and hat size. Approximate yardage for children sizes: 100 - 220 yards (90 - 200 meters). Approximate yardage for adult sizes: 140 - 320 yards (130 - 300 meters) This is an excellent pattern for Magic Loop. Just switch the 16" circs to 40" circs and forget the DPNs BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round knit, purl and k2tog GAUGE This is a multi-gauge pattern.
