Found this hat pattern to use as a swatch for the Allegan Cardigan. Might as well get an FO out of my swatch since this pattern is the same stitch pattern as the Allegan Cardigan.
8/13/10 - Finished and it fits great! I think this is going to be a nice, warm hat.
Calculated gauge at 15 stitches per 4 inches. The Allegan Cardigan calls for a gauge of 16/4 inches so I think this should work - if the sweater is a bit bigger I think it will be fine.
