GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, K YO twisted on next row to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

SHORT ROWS 1:
Work short rows to get a nice shape on lace edge as follows:
Beg from RS and K over all sts, turn piece and K 17 from WS (i.e. until marker), turn piece and K 17 from RS, turn piece, bind off the first 6 sts and K over all sts on row = 1 repetition with short rows.

SHORT ROWS 2:
Beg from RS and K over all sts, turn piece and K 11 from WS (i.e. until marker), turn piece and K 11 from RS, turn piece and K 8 from WS, turn piece and K 8 from RS, turn piece and K 5 from WS, turn piece and K 5 from RS, turn piece and K 2 from WS, turn piece and K 2 from RS.
Work 2 ridges in garter st back and forth over all 68 sts, the shawl has been worked to the middle.
Then work as follows, beg from WS: K 2, turn piece and K 2 from RS, turn piece and K 5 from WS, turn piece and K 5 from RS, turn piece and K 8 from WS, turn piece and K 8 from RS, turn piece and K 11 from WS, turn piece and K 11 from RS, turn piece and K back over all sts = 1 repetition with short rows.

SHORT ROWS 3:
Beg from RS, K over all sts and cast on 6 new sts at end of row, turn piece and K 17 from WS (i.e. until marker), turn piece and K 17 from RS, turn piece and K back over all sts on row = 1 repetition with short rows.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st by K 2 sts tog.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 100 sts with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4.
Work in stockinette st for 3 cm / 1’’ with 1 edge st in GARTER ST in each side - see explanation above. K 1 row from WS (= folding edge) and continue in stockinette st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side for 3 cm / 1’’ – make sure that next row is from RS.
Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work 1 ridge in garter st AT THE SAME TIME dec 16 sts evenly on 1st row = 84 sts.
NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Continue in garter st back and forth until piece measures 20 cm / 8’’.
On next row from RS K 2 tog across = 42 sts remain on needle. K 3 rows. On next row (= RS) K 2 tog across = 21 sts remain on needle.
K 3 rows. On next row (= RS) K 2 tog across = 11 sts remain on needle.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the bottom edge on hat double towards WS in folding edge and fasten with small stitches - make sure to avoid a tight seam.
Then sew hat tog mid back, sew in front loop of outermost st to avoid a chunky seam. Hat measures approx. 26 cm / 10 1/4’’ vertically (includes 3 cm / 1’’ edge at the bottom).

Row 2 (= WS): Work A.1 over the first 12 sts, marker, K the rest of row, turn piece.
Row 3 (= RS): K until marker, 1 YO – READ INCREASE TIP, marker, A.1 over the last 12 sts = 17 sts on row, turn piece.
Row 4 (= WS): Work A.1 over the first 13 sts, marker, K YO twisted and K the rest of row, turn piece.
