The Around & About Hat showcases a band of two-color garter stitch in the midst of a snug fitting ribbed beanie or a slightly slouchy stockinette version. Five size options fitting toddlers through adults will make it easy to keep the whole family warm with colorful stripes going around and about their heads! This is a wonderful stash-busting project too, as the contrast color requires no more than 30 yards in any size or style.

Gauge Notes:

22 stitches =4” (10 cm) in 2x2 ribbing, unstretched; 4.5 stitches = 4” (10 cm) in garter stitch, unstretched

26 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette; 36 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in garter

Note that since there is really no one spot in either hat where you’ll easily be able to measure 4” of row gauge, the 1” gauge measurements are equal to:

6.5 rounds = 1” (2.5 cm) in stockinette; 9 rounds = 1” (2.5 cm) in garter
