HAT:
Worked in the round. Loosely cast on 108-114-120 (126-132) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with red or graypurple (no of sts divisible by 6, distribute sts evenly on 4 double pointed needles). P 1 round, then work in stockinette st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 5-5-6 (6-7) cm / 2''-2''-2 3/8'' (2 3/8''-2¾'') work diagram M.1. After diagram M.1 has been worked 2 times vertically, work rounds 1-7 in diagram M.1, then K 1 round with red while at the same time dec 4-2-0 (6-4) sts evenly = 104-112-120 (120-128) sts (no of sts divisible by 8). Piece now measures approx. 13-13-14 (14-15) cm / 5 1/8"-5 1/8"-5½" (5½"-6"). Then work diagram M.2 1 time vertically, and then finish the piece with dark olive.
Now insert 13-14-15 (15-16) markers in the piece 8 sts apart. Then dec 1 st on left side of all markers (by K 2 tog) on every other round until 8 sts remain on needles. Piece now measures approx. 18-18-19 (20-21) cm / 7"-7"-7½" (8"-8 1/4"). Work in the round for 3 cm / 1 1/8'' over these sts for "stem". Pull a double thread through the remaining sts and fasten tightly.
