Sometimes, women just need instant gratification (and chocolate). Gracie was a highly satisfying and fun project that I did freehand as my first knitted beret. I was amazed on how fast this knit up. Use bulky yarn, and you'll have your holiday gifts knit up in a flash--in under a weekend!! Never grump again about all that extra yarn you have left after the project is done...make matching fingerless gloves!
Yarn: Bulky soft wool or alpaca (hat: approx. 200-250 yards)
Needles: set of 4 dpns, size US8 & Size US9 circular needles (24'') and a darning needle.
SIZES: S/M & L/XL
Ribbing: 19.5 inches diameter for the small/medium, unstretched. This will fit a decently big head. If you are worried, bump up to size 9 US needles on the ribbing, or dare to knit the XL size.
Height: about 9 inches.
GAUGE: 4.5 stitches= 1," & 5 rows= 1'' on size 9 US.
