Easy Knitting Machine Hat
Designed by Barbara Wampler, Florida
NOTE: Don't use tight tension...make sure it stretches.
Measure your swatch for # of sts. per inch & multiply by the following for the width:
(Example: you get 7 sts=1" x 6 = 42 sts. needed.)
X-Small Preemie x 5.5 wide (total length 3.5")
Lg. Preemie X 8 wide (total length 4 1/2"-5")
Sm. Preemie X 6 wide (total length 3.5"-4")
X-Large Preemie X 9 wide (total length 5 1/2")
Med. Preemie X 7 wide (total length 4"-4 1/2")
Full Term X 10.5 wide (total length 6"-6 1/2")
Do mock ribbing for 1" and then knit in stockinette, fair isle, etc. to needed length. Break yarn, leaving a 12" tail or yarn.
With yarn needle, pick up each stitch from the machine, pull yarn tightly to gather top and stitch side seam.
